After giving to light three children men: Juan Valentin, Pablo Nicholas and Miguel, the infant Cristina second daughter of the the king of Spain fulfill the past 5 of June his dream have a a daughter, when the give to light to Irene, the the sixth granddaughter of Juan Carlos and Sofía.

Cristina forgot the austerity


In her youth the infant characterized itself by her simplicity, did not dress clothes mark but recycled suits of her mother, the queen

The Universal One
Domingo 07 of August of 2005




The Spanish press is wondered how the Dukes of Palm could almost pay to a so luxurious house, if, for example, king Juan Carlos of Spain can have 120 million annual weights, that is to say, the total price of the house of their small daughter. And it assured that "both pays of the pair do not seem sufficient to allow that house".

The certain thing is that the fact, because calls the attention infant Cristina has always characterized itself by the austerity. And unlike his Elena sister, to whom it likes to shine dresses of well-known foreign modistos, the minor of the infants in his youth did not not only dress clothes mark, but that used recycled suits of the queen.

Worthy house of the royalty

Elegant palacete constructed of white limestone stone is constructed in the stroll corner Queen Elisenda with Pedro Moncada, as opposed to the aesthetic clinical sanctioned one of Flat and next to the school Frederic Mistral, by the way to which their children go.

In a land of 2 thousand 500 square meters (thousand 200 meters of construction and thousands 300 of garden), the residence is distributed in three plants. First it is a semibasement with a great kitchen, a dining room with chimney, a zone on watch, a warehouse and a pantry. Also there is a garage for three cars.

In the second plant there is a kitchen, an immense dining room with room and the spectacular main dormitory, of almost one hundred square meters, with an falsified bathroom covered of black marble, a vestidor and a terrace that it gives to the garden. In the same plant there are two medium rooms connected to each other by a bathroom and another room suite with a complete bathroom.

The last floor exactly has eight equal windows of French style, an enormous room-library that originally was a modern room of cinema, a dormitory and a small annexed hall.

As far as the garden, this one has a leafy vegetation that allows its inhabitants to feel isolated within a great city as it is Barcelona. There is many pines, great extensions of grass, a fronton, pond, an outer dining room to celebrate meals and meetings and a track of cement dance. Also there is a pavilion in which they sleep the escorts of the family.

History of the mansion

Constructed in 1952 by Vilallonga architect for own use, and sold later, in 1982, to Maria Ventós and her family, the husband of this one, Mario Herrera, it was sold the Dukes of Palm, those that are said fell in love with the mansion since they lived near the district in a department that cost to him to Urdangarín, at its moment, 540 thousand euros (more or less 8 million weights).

Although this department was ample, that arrived the moment at was insufficient for the three children of the Dukes and the constant visits of the queen, reason why in February of the 2004 expressed to Herrera its interest to him by the house.

After the currier's knife and it relaxes , to June fixed the price of the mansion, almost 7 million euros (near 105 million weights), which were paying little by little until in the month of October they eliminated the debt.

As of that moment the architects entered the house to see in that circumstances were (they say frankly that deplorable) and to study the type of furniture.

Finally, after an investment of little more than 600 thousand euros (9 million weights), the house was to taste of infant Cristina and the Duke of Palm, reason why in the first months of the year they sold its department and they were changed to its new mansion when the infant still was pregnant (the 5 of August the small Irene turned three months). One knows that the Dukes of Palm bought the house with the original furniture, but they have only remained with some of them, among others, comfortable English and two pianos of tail.

Thanks for the articles and pics, rchainho.

Here a new article from ABC:

The dukes of Palm are "models of freedom ".


The Congress of Numerous families of Cataluña has asked Her Royal Highness the Infanta Doña Cristina to accept Honor's Presidency. She is the mother of one of the most famous numerous families in Cataluña (last June she gave birth her first daughter and fourth child, Irene) and the organization has thought that, together with his husband Iñaki Urdangarín, " they are a role model of freedom at the moment of questioning themselves what type of family they wanted to have ", says Raúl Sanchez. Doña Cristina's assistance to the acts of October 22 in the Winterthur auditorum isn't confirmed yet.
