Madrid – Chueca – Architecture
There’s not that much to see in terms of architecture in Chueca, except for Palacio Longoria on the corner of Calle Fernando VI and Calle Pelayo.
It was built in 1902 by the Catalán architect José Grases Riera.
I’ve read that it’s the best example of Modernisme in Madrid, a movement more associated with Gaudi and Barcelona.
It currently houses the Spanish General Society of Authors and Editors. Sadly I don’t think it’s open to the public but you can see photos from inside by clicking on this link.
I hope to fill this post up a bit more next time I’m in town.
