Barrio de Salamanca: Madrid’s Golden Mile


The Salamanca neighborhood is the richest neighborhood in Madrid, along with Chamberí. Along the streets of this neighborhood, you can find the luxury stores located in the Golden Mile and it has become the home for the upper class of Madrid. In addition, it is also an area of the city that is in full expansion, as new offices and businesses have been located, giving a fresh air to the neighborhood.

Staying in the Salamanca neighborhood is a practically impossible task, due to the limited offer for tourists in this area and the high prices that only a few people can afford. But in byPillow we wanted to reinvent the concept of luxury accommodations, offering you all the services you will need during your days off, at a very affordable price.

If you want to get to know the essence of the Salamanca neighborhood, we recommend that you walk down Marqués de Salamanca street, located at the intersection of Príncipe de Vergara and Ortega Gasset streets. There you will find some impressive buildings and a statue of the promoter of this neighborhood.

Also look at the Zuazo houses, built with berroqueña stone and the Escoriaza palace, with a facade that was originally located in a building of the current Gran Vía. In addition, you can visit the Villota, Taviel de Andrade and Marqués de Rafal palaces.
