Built in 1865 by architect Francisco de Cubas, Marquis of Cubas, on Paseo de Recoletos, opposite the beautiful palace of the Marquis of Salamanca (1846-1855).
It forms part of a line of buildings, and is a typical Madrid upper-class palace residence from the times of Queen Isabella II, consisting of a ground floor, main floor and top floor, finished with balustrade. The decoration on the façade is an iconic celebration of the main values of that society. Special attention is given to the Bolognese loggia of Neo-Renaissance motifs on the main floor, consisting of candelabra motifs (a candilieri) and tondos with allegoric high-relief busts representing science, industry and commerce.
