Other Historic Palaces, Castles and Residences

This thread can be used as a general discussion thread for the Spanish residences which do not have a specific thread.



Imagine Scandinavia - The 'Principado de Asturias' has presented the Palace of Selgas to Prince Felipe of Spain and his fiancee Letizia Ortiz as a present to the couple. Felipe's title is from the area and Letizia is also originally from that area. The palace will be a residence of the future King and his wife, which is located in the village of Cudillero.

Palace of Selgas

I love that house! It reminds me a tiny bit of Highgrove, Charles's home.

It was reading and I am going to correct something. The Palace of the Selgas is not a gift of Asturias to the Princes. Before the wedding already often spoken of which the Prince had a house in Asturias, but never has happened, nor after the wedding. This palace works as a museum with restricted visits because they have important works of art.
And another thing for that does not know it, in Spain the palaces do not belong to the Royal Family, they belong to the State through a organism called National Patrimony, and the Royal Family can enjoy them but they are not its owners. It happens like with the houses of the presidents of government in other countries.

FAILED EXPERIENCES

Summerings in the north of the Royal Family



In addition to in the Palace of the Magdalena in Santander, there were other attempts failed of which the Spanish Royal Family spent the summer in the north of Spain, like Galicia.

17 of August of 2005. The fact that Princes de Asturias look for a summery residence in Asturias, brings to the memory the data of the real residences been or projects aborted in the North coast of Spain. The Palace of the Magdalena of Santander was place of summering of the family of Alfonso XIII, Reina calls to account of whom kept good memory as much Eugenia Victory as its children, in special Don Juan de Borbón, Count of Barcelona. It was not óbice so that with time the Borbones undid of her, alienating it, in spite of the familiar memories that conserve and that today exhibit the University the International Menéndez Pelayo, that occupies the palace like seat.

Galicia, in their day, through promen of company and popular subscription, donated to Alfonso XIII the island of Cortegada (Pontevedra), with the commitment of which they went to spend seasons in her to relaunch the zone economically. It was not thus. The palace of the island of Cortegada never got to be constructed, but the Royal Family felt like proprietor of the island without restriction some and Don Juan, Count of Barcelona, sold it to the real estate Cortegada, gesture that extremely was criticized by the public opinion and some historians in its books like Ricardo of the Cierva. The countess of Bárcena House - according to account the grandson in his memories left writing between his papers: "the unfortunate case of the island of Cortegada", because a great fortune to its husband, the entrepreneur Augusto de Bárcena and Franco had cost, and it had to finish off the payment already being widow. Cortegada is the greater forest of laurisilva in Europe.

At sight of history it does not surprise the news that "the Principality of Asturias has resisted" to donate "a building of the public patrimony from fear of the critics of the citizenship". The experience of the past is not indeed encouraging, aside from that the King of Spain is today one of the great fortunes judging by the ranking that has been published in the foreign press.

Let us remember that pazo (palace in Gallego) of Meirás also him "gift '" to Franc, by popular subscription, with the pay of a day of the Spanish workers. The palace of Ayete, in San Sebastián, also has been host of rest of the headquarters of the Spanish State, although later the politicosocial confliction of the zone did not make it recommendable for it.

The Kings of Spain went to Majorca to enjoy the Mediterranean, a familiar sea to Reina Sofía of Greece. Now it is Letizia Ortiz, of Asturias, the one that inclines to the Prince towards its Cantabrian relative. Nothing that to object, but that everyone confronts its decisions.

The hotel of the kings without crown fulfills 75 years

In the Palace of Estoril, located to 20 minutes far from the center of Lisbon and few passages from the beach, there were lodged personages like: Indira Gandhi, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Juan de Borbón and Duchess Carlota of Luxembourg, among others.

Joaquim, at that time barman of the Palace, remembered the visit of Don Juan de Borbón, father of present king Juan Carlos I of Spain, that did not need to request that it served dry to him Martini, "of regal size".

In her halls the older sister of the king of Spain, the countess of Badajoz appeared in society, Doña Pilar, and in them the wedding of Maria Pía de Saboya was celebrated, greater daughter of Humberto II. The Palace also was residence of queen Victoria Eugenia of Spain, when it visited the counts of Barcelona.

This is how Infanta Cristina's new house looked like, when they bought it, about a year ago. It's a property of 2,155 square meters, located in Pedralbes (the best zone of Barcelona), which costed 8.000.000 €. The house itself measures 1,063 square meters, and it has been remodeled since then, so I believe it looks very different by now. Anyway, here are the photos from when the house belonged to the previous owner, as published by Hola:

Here's the façade of Cristina & Iñaki's new home:

thanks, it looks great, though very close to the road, so not to much privacy I assume. Any pics of the places of the other infantas? Where do they live anway? All in Madrid (I belie infante Carlos and Anne of France do)?

According to Elmundo, it is a vast property of 2,155 square meters, with swimming pool and a sport zone (tennis court, etc.). Perhaps the façade is close to the road, but it must have a large private area backwards...

Infanta Elena lives in an appartement located in the centre of Madrid. Regarding Carlos de Borbón Dos Sicilias and his wife Ana de Francia, perhaps you could take a look at the thread of the family Bourbón Dos-Sicilias:
HRH the Duke of Calabria (1938- ) and the Royal House of Bourbon-Two Sicilies

An update here...

Both the Infantas moved to their new homes, during the Easter vacations; Elena is now living in a bigger appartment located in the certer of Madrid, while her younger sister has moved to a large house in Pedralbes (one of the most exclusive districts of Barcelona). Here are some more photos from the front door of Cristina's house.
