Plaza de la Villa of Madrid
Plaza de la Villa is located in the historic center of Madrid and was one of the main areas of medieval Madrid.
It holds the facades of three buildings of great historical and artistic value, built in different centuries. The oldest is the House and Tower of Luján (XV century), built in Gothic-Mudejar, which is located on the eastern side of the square. It is followed in age by Casa de Cisneros (sixteenth century), a palace plateresque that closes the southern part of the enclosure, and the Casa de la Villa (seventeenth century), Baroque style, one of the sites of the Madrid City Hall, located at the western area of the square.
In the fifteenth century, the Plaza de la Villa took its current name, coinciding with the granting of title of Noble and Leal received by Villa Madrid, in the hands of King Henry IV of Castille.
