Descalzas Reales hotels
Descalzas Reales, or “Monastery of the Barefoot Royals” is one of the most cherished historical and religious buildings in Madrid. The complex was once part of the royal palace that housed Portugal's Carlos I and Isabel; however, their daughter, Juana, converted the premises into a convent in the 16th century. Since the 1960s the museum in Descalzas Reales has been the means of support for the good Sisters who provide guided tours in Spanish and English. The complex is centrally located near the traffic-free Calle Arenal and close to the Royal Palace and the Plaza de Opera.
