Linares Palace is in a privileged location in Madrid. Its façades give onto the Plaza de Cibeles Square, Recoletos Avenue and Alcalá Street. Construction began on the building in 1873, by order of the Marquis of Linares. It is now home to the Casa de América, and its rooms serve as a venue for a range of cultural activities.

This palace building is neo-Baroque in style and French in inspiration. Its main façade is outstanding, spectacular, with three entrance doors crowned by balconies. The interior features a wealth of decoration by such prestigious artists as Jerónimo Suñol, creator of the stunning marble banister on the staircase in the hall. Other important areas of the building include the ballrooms, the Hall of Mirrors, the chapel, Dolls’ House and the garden.
