A Place in the Time

La Capilla de la Bolsa is located in Madrid ́s historic quarter, next to the Plaza Mayor, in La calle de la Bolsa, formerly known as Las Leñeras ́ street, in reference to the timber (leña) kept there by the Inquisition to burn heretics at the stake.

The building that houses La Capilla de la Bolsa, was in the Middle Ages the hermitage of Santa Cruz, which has been linked to the legendary order of the Templar Knights, crusader warriors whose ultimate mision was to project the sacred places and holy symbols of primitive Christianism. The city ́s historical archives also identify building as the assembly hall for the first masonic lodge in Spain.

From the 18th Century onwards the activities taking place in the building remain omniously mysterious: some of the owners apper in the records as “anonymous”. It is said to have been used for private and secular activities, eventually becoming the location for Madrid ́s first Stock and Commodity Exchange.

The building lay abandoned for most of the 19th Century and lay derelict until it was reopened to the public as a restaurant 20 years ago. Tty, after being extensively renovated, it reopens as La Capilla de la Bolsa.

Its architecture, in particular the great baroque vault and the original columns, have been preserved so our guest can enjoy an atmosphere that evokes centurias of History.
