Engel & Volkers, Luxury Real Estate in Madrid, presents this property all a dream in Andalucia . It is the Cordovan Palace of the Earls of Torres Cabrera, manor mansion of two floors with a superb façade of colors red and ocher. A grid of green cast iron gives way to a well-kept garden that takes us into the splendor of the baroque. Since 1847 this majestic palace rises with reminiscences of Italian villa. They are almost 2,500 m² built of luxury and history: 23 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, several dining rooms, a succession of lounges, private oratory, marble floors, 2 gardens, swimming pool, parking for 12 vehicles.
Inside the palace are hidden treasures of incalculable value. In the central courtyard of the building, ringed by arches supported by thirty columns, is a set of Roman mosaics of the II century AD that represent the god Bacchus and his cortege. A black marble staircase inlaid with white marble and red jasper links the two floors of the property.
But the jewel of the crown is a rich Hall of the Throne of 90 m² that the IX Earl of Torres Cabrera ordered to build in 1877 on the occasion of the visit of the King Alfonso XII to Cordoba.
The list of illustrious guests who have passed through the palace is another attribute of this unique property. The afore mentioned king Alfonso XII, his son Alfonso XIII, the newly married kings of Jordan Husein and Dina, the politician Antonio Cánovas del Castillo and the dukes of Montpensier are some of the most prominent names.
