Sándor Palace in Budapest, Hungary. Almost completely destroyed in 1945. Reconstructed in 2000 – 2002.

The palace is situated at Szent György tér 1-2 (St. George Square) in Buda, immediately north of the Buda Castle complex, which was the former residence of the kings and governors of Hungary.

The original palace was built in about 1803, and completed in about 1806. Count Vincent Sándor commissioned it, and the palace was named after him.

After WWI, Sándor Palace continued as the Prime Minister's residence until World War II. In 1941, during the war, the grief-stricken Pál Teleki committed suicide in the palace. Less than four years later, Allied aircraft bombed Sándor Palace, and the building was left as a miserable heap of stones. Anything in the palace that was of value was taken as war bounty.

In 1945:

Madrid. Saint Isidore's Chapel

After Saint Isidore the Farmer's canonization in 1622, it was decided to built a new chapel to keep the saint's incorrupt body, since the church where it was kept at that time was considered to be very modest for Madrid's patron saint. Beacuse of economic difficulties, it was not finished until 1669.

It was one of the most important baroque buildings of Madrid until being destroyed by a fire in 1936, at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War. Only the walls escaped desctruction.

Fortunately, the chapel was rebuilt to its original state in the 80's, but the rest of the church was simplified to reduce the budget.

Royal Palace of Olite - Olite - Navarre - Spain

The fortification is both castle and palace, although it was built more like a courtier building to fulfill a military function. Since the 13th-century the Castle of Olite was called as Palace of the King of Navarre. King Charles III of Navarre expanded the palace , turning it into one of the most impressive medieval palaces:

Surely there is no king with a more beautiful castle or palace and with so many gilded rooms (...) it could not say or even could imagine how magnificent and sumptuous is this palace (...) ( A 15th-century German traveller wrote his impressions in his diary, now conserved in the British Museum in London).

Unfortunately, during the Napoleonic Invasion, it was set to fire by Spanish guerrilla leader Francisco Espoz y Mina, to prevent it from being used by the French army.

In 1923 it was decided to rebuild the palace, although works didn't start until 1937. Nowadays, reconstruction isn't yet finished.

Palacio de Galiana - Toledo - Spain

This building was the leisure palace of Al-Mamun, Muslim king of Toledo, and dates from the XI century. It was subsequently modified a number of times until the XIV century by Muslim architects. It was lately abandoned for several centuries, so its state at the end of the XIX century was this:







At that time, Empress Eugenie tried to rebuild it, but she died before she could begin. Luckily, the palace owners decided to restore it and its gardens in the 1960's. Nowadays it looks great:

The reconstructions are great but what I think is largely missing is the restoration of the historic urban fabric -- the network and scale of streets and passageways.

Exactly. I am pretty sure it was not damaged in WW2.
