Habsburg Madrid: the old heart of the city

Description

Madrid de los Austrias is a section of the historic city centre of Madrid, and is one of the Spanish capita’s most iconic areas. It is completely removed from the image of traffic jams, bustle and honking horns many people conjure up when they picture Madrid. Despite this, it could be argued that Madrid de los Austrias is the real Madrid, and the most castizo (traditional). Unlike other European capitals, Madrid never seemed imperial, even though it was once the capital of the most important empire in the world. Rather, it resembled a very large village, a large-scale version of the true Castile.
