The Petit Palais constitutes an architectural jewel, located in front of the Royal Palace of Pardo, an emblematic site with a vast history, built at the end of the 19th century by Doña María del Carmen de Aragón-Azlor e Idiáquez, XV Duchess of Villahermosa together with her husband, who had their main residence in Madrid in the Palacio de Villahermosa, currently the Thyssen Bornemisza Museum. They were patrons of the arts and lovers of culture. The building was the second residence of the Dukes where they spent their free time. Characterized by its Neoclassical lines echoing the ancient architecture of the Habsburgs in Spain.

The Duchy of Villahermosa is one of the main titles of nobility in Spain, created in 1476 by Juan II of Aragón, in favor of his son Alonso de Aragón, stepbrother of Fernando el Católico. It was granted first class greatness in 1520 by Emperor Charles V.

It is a house where, as we enter, we are greeted by an area of ​​Hungary, with magical gardens with different statues, a magnificent wrought iron gazebo with a beautiful central sculpture, one of the few that remain original from such an ancient period, and in which, Through a staircase we access the Palace.
Upon entering, we are surprised by the luxury of its interior, original, with furniture from all eras that begin with the Renaissance and end in the 19th and early 20th centuries. All the rooms are divided thematically, characterized by its old fireplace, still in use, numerous works of art full of beauty, tapestries that are no longer made today, antique furniture, frescoes on tapestries with a floral romantic style in keeping with the natural environment and a spectacular staircase in the main hall where one of the main elements in her rest are the two huge mirrors in which she saw herself reflected when she went up to her rooms. This house still has those main elements.
It is a jewel to walk through its rooms, which are brighter, darker, cooler and warmer depending on the time of year.
We observe immense rooms with privacy in each one of them, it offers us different spaces to read, to have tea, to receive friends, for an intimate or group dinner and a no less important detail, the beautiful glass gallery, devised in times of Alfonso XIII in order to have privacy, without losing the possibility of looking outwards.
In short, it is a real privilege to have this gift of our history and to be able to enjoy it.
