The history of the Salamanca district is without a doubt part of the history of Madrid. The area is one of the most exclusive in the capital and, in fact, is home to some of the most high-valued properties in Madrid. An elegant and stately neighbourhood with excellent communications with the rest of the city.
Always a reference point for the upper classes, it has become one of the most important areas of the city and one of the neighbourhoods with the highest standard of living in Europe with the best shopping area in Madrid around the streets Serrano, Claudio Coello and Ortega y Gasset.
The so-called Golden Mile has become one of the main bastions for luxury and haute couture brands, where the most chic ready-to-wear collections can be found.
Stately houses, palaces and historic buildings make up the majestic Salamanca district.
Just a short walk from the centre of Madrid, this area is home to many of the city's most representative and historic sites.
The Retiro Park is a large green space of 118 hectares in the heart of Madrid, whose origins date back to the 17th century, when the Count-Duke of Olivares designed a space for the recreation of King Philip IV. The park combines marvellous gardens, large fountains and wild areas.
A walk through the streets of the Salamanca district discovering its shop windows is the perfect plan for those who love fashion and luxury.
It also draws attention to the wide gastronomic variety, ranging from traditional restaurants to international and avant-garde cuisine, where quality, innovation and exclusivity are not missing.
A few meters from the Retiro Park, between Alcalá and O’Donnell streets, the LR15 building is located in a privileged enclave in the most exclusive neighborhood of Madrid. A short distance from the city’s prime areas (Velázquez, Serrano, Recoletos…) you will find the most important commercial, cultural, leisure and restaurant offerings.
