Map
25 Calle de Principe, Plaza Santa Ana, Madrid, 28012, Spain

Behind its impressive neoclassical façade with the stone busts of playwrights, the Teatro Español stages Spanish and international dramatic works in a grand hall filled with royal-red seats and gilt trim. There’s long been a theater on this spot, starting with the open-air Corral de Príncipe in the 16th century. A series of fires and re-builds have drastically changed the building since then, and in 1804 Juan de Villanueva, architect of the Museo Nacional del Prado, designed the main elegant structure. Located off Plaza Santa Ana, the theater underwent its most recent restoration in 1980.
