One of the main attractions of the central area is undoubtedly the well-known Madrid de los Austrias. It is not a neighbourhood in itself, but it is delimited as a primitive medieval layout initiated by the House of Habsburg since Charles I and especially by Philip II.
In this area we can find one of the most historic monuments in the whole city.
This street, with its unmistakable medieval layout, is home to an important historical and artistic heritage, with old palaces from the 17th century such as the one that houses this house.
The shopping and restaurant offer is very good, with traditional restaurants and popular shops alongside other more avant-garde options.
The condition of the property is good, although it needs updating. The distribution is quite modern with living room and kitchen connected with service area and office. Three south facing bedrooms, all of them exterior. Rooms of great cubic capacity due to the height of the ceilings of 4 metres.
The protected and exempt building of Ibi, is in perfect state of conservation and maintains the original attributes, such as the magnificent façade, the entrance gate, the carriage passage, the great central staircase and the magnificent patio.
The palace was built on a section of the Arab wall that is still intact.
