  • the building is next to the naval museum but cannot be visited on rare occasions such as indicated by the title. As originally this building had been vested in the Admiralty decoration retains traces and in looking up at stained glass covering the courtyards we discover sea stars, crabs, anchors, etc. These superb stained-glass windows were created by a French family who had received the order and moved to Spain so orders flocked from all over the country, it's the company Mauméjean. It is ironic that the elevators could not be borrowed by all, there is even one exclusively reserved for admirals. A beautiful bas-relief in marble completes the staircase.

  • The building is from the early 20th century, is grandiose and neo-Gothic style. Therefore, as for the edification, there's nothing to consider negatively. What confuses me a bit is how Madrid, which has no sea or ocean has a huge Navy Headquarters, when it should be, for example, in Barcelona, Bilbao, a Coruña, Valencia, Tarragona, Santander or any other Spanish city. Joking a bit, probably, will be to stay close to the Lake of the Retiro Park, for defense of the statue of Alfonso XII.
