to be rehabilitated
The Duchess of Sueca Palace is located in the heart of Madrid in Plaza Duque de Alba. It was built at the end of the 18th century, and its name comes from the years during which it was the residence of María Teresa de Borbón and Vallabriga, the Duchess of Sueca and first wife of Manuel Godoy.
Over the course of its history, the Duchess of Sueca Palace has had many lives. It was a school for the children of the servants of Charles III, the residence of Manuel Godoy and María Teresa de Borbón y Vallabriga, a school, one of the first Civil Guard barracks in Madrid, and housing.
