One can walk down the Calle Mayor in the daytime, pass by the Plaza Villa, and hardly give it a second glance, but it was here that Madrid has been governed since its inception.

The Casa de Cisneros was constructed in 1537 to house a nephew of Cardinal Cisneros.

Local rule was granted to Madrid under Alphonse XI in the 1300's. The local government's first city hall was built on this square.

In the center of the plaza can be found an 1888 statue of Don Alvaro de Bazán, the Marquis de Santa Cruz. In the photo above, the building right of the statue is the current town hall which was build from 1640-1670A.D.
