Main buildings in the Chamartín district

Our jewelry firm German Jeweler located at Avenida de Concha Espina 5 in the Chamartín district, next to Plaza de los Sagrados Corazones, is very familiar with the Chamartín neighborhood and for this reason we want to show you the most iconic and representative buildings that are definitely worth visiting.


This palace is located in the neighborhood of Nueva España between Platería Street and Paseo de la Habana. It was built in 1860 and everyone mistakenly calls it the Palace of the Dukes of Pastrana, however these dukes were never the owners. Its official name is the palace of the Quinta de San Enrique.

It is named after the son of the French-born businessman Louis Ghilhou Rives, who ordered its construction.

This palace is currently owned by ONCE.

This incredible stadium is currently under construction and is intended to become the best stadium in the world.

These two original twin skyscrapers located in the Castilla neighborhood make up the Puerta de Europa and is undoubtedly one of the most famous elements of the Madrid skyline.

These buildings were built between 1989 and 1996 and are also known as the KIO Towers.

Next to the Puerta de Europa we also have two constructions that do not leave indifferent as the Obelisk of the Caja de Santiago Calatrava and the monument of José Calvo Sotelo.
