"Ensanches" of MADRID. Recoletos.

Recoletos is one of the neighborhoods that shapes the famous Barrio de Salamanca of Madrid, this neighborhood is the oldest in the district and was ordered by the "Plan Castro" (1860). Madrid needed to expand the city so the "ensanches" were the solution.
"Ensanche" is the word used to name the development areas of Spanish cities during the XIX century, when there was a demographic explosion.

Currently Recoletos is the most expensive neighborhood in the city of Madrid and one of the main centers of lavish boutiques in Europe. Despite the passage of time, most buildings are perfectly preserved, in my opinion Recoletos is undervalued by residents and tourists.

Barrio de Recoletos.
