This history explains the layout of the surprisingly intimate city centre, a cat's cradle of streets strung between the Alc zar to the west and the Buen Retiro, to the new palace built by Felipe IV in the 1630s, to the east.
Both have vanished: the Buen Retiro was destroyed during the Napoleon Wars, leaving only the shady park which is such an asset to the city, and the Alc zar was replaced by the present royal palace in the 18th century.
Impressive as the building is, the interior, largely completed in the reign of Carlos III (1759- 88), linger longest in the memory, for their magnificent furniture, tapestries and porcelain demonstrate that the 18th century was a golden age of the decorative arts in Spain.
