If you mean the Asturias family, they live in a mansion recently build within the area of Zarzuela Palace. I think I can find a PDF file I know I have of the structure plans.

Alcazar of Sevilla

When I was in Seville several years ago and toured the Alcazar, I seem to recall being told that it still served as a working royal palace when a member of the royal family was in town. Is this correct? Do the Spanish royals still use it? Thanks.

The Royal Family used it when Infant Elena married in the city, also in the Universal Exhibition of 1992 and sometimes they can use it in some official act in the city, but they do not use it of habitual form.

San Telmo -or Montpensier- Palace (Seville)

The Palacio of San Telmo in Seville has been bought by Prince Antoine of France, Duke of Montpensier and his wife infanta Luisa of Spain (sister of Queen Isabel II). The duke bought the palace in 1844 but was already built in 1682. The original function of the building was to house a seafearing school. The explains the origin of the name San Telmo, as he is the patron of sailors. The school could only occupy the building in 1734 because architect Antonio Matías needed that time to work on all the details. The palace is considered as the finest example of baroque architecture in Seville. Today, the local government of Andalusia uses the palace.

In 1897 the palace was donated the the archdiocese. The gardens were donated to the city of Seville by princess Maria Luisa, which explains the name of the parc: parque de Maria Luisa.

Casa Palacio Hernán Cortés, (Seville)

Hernán Cortés´s palace; placed in Castilleja de la Cuesta, only 5 minutes from Seville (Spain), was the last residence from the conquest of mexico.


This building from the XVI century, with neomudéjar style, was later bougth by the duchy of Montpensier one of the most important families of Seville. Even if their residence used to be the Palacio de San Telmo, this palace was used as their summer house.

When their daugter Maria of Orleans was married with the king Alfonso XII she received the palace as a gift, but after her suddenlly dead , the building was given to Maria de las Mercedes ( princess of asturias), one of the king´s daugthers.

Finally the buiding was sell by Maria de las Mercedes to the irish nuns, whom from 1903 until now run a public school inside the palace.

Ponferrada Castle is located in El Bierzo, in the Province of Leon, Spain.

Ponferrada Castle is a Templar castle (Castillo Templario).
The castle was built by the Templar Knights in the 1100s to protect the pilgrims on the Way of St. James.
Ponferrada Castle was built over what was once a pre-Roman fort.

The castle has an irregular plan with double line of defense on the side facing the city of Ponferrada and only one facing the river Sil.
Ponferrada Castle's interior is divided in two different parts.
The Galician nobleman, Pedro Fernandez de Castro built the old castle.
The new castle was built by the Count of Lemos, Pedro Alvarez de Osorio and his grandson.

In 1486 Ponferrado Castle became property of the Crown.
The Royal Castle of Olite is a former castle of the kings of Navarre, situated in northern Spain.

The first Olite Castle had been designated the "palace of the kings of Navarre" in 13th century documents.
It had been laid out on the site of a Roman praetorium of the 1st century A.D.
Olite Castle served as a residence for the governors during the kings' long absences in the country of France.

Queen Joanna II (reigned 1328-1349) and King Philip III of Evreux (reigned 1328-1343) and King Charles II (reigned 1349-1387) made improvements to Olite Castle.

King Charles III (reigned 1387-1425) and his wife, Queen Eleanor had additional improvements made to Olite Castle.
The French artists Jacob le Cote and Juan du Ruisel collaborated on the decoration.
Glass painters came from Aragon and Flanders.
In 1850, the city of Ponferrada began to sell the stones of the castle to build the walls of other buildings.

In 1924 the Templar Castle in Ponferrada was declared a National Monument and Historic Art.
