Why is Petit Palace Arenal in Madrid special?

Perhaps the name of Fernando de Castro may not be very well-known, but this neurohistologist, along with the Russian Lawrentiew, was the world's foremost authority on the ganglia of the peripheral sympathetic system, driving numerous studies that have enabled a better understanding and treatment of chemoreceptors. His place of birth was at 16 Arenal Street, Madrid, in the Petit Palace Arenal, and a plaque stands there in gratitude to commemorate Fernando de Castro's place birth. Erected in the mid-19th century as a civil building, the Petit Palace Arenal boasts a rich history that can still be experienced. The basement's brick vault, where the breakfast room is currently located, is particularly striking. Among the brick columns and a slightly curved ceiling, a breakfast is a unique experience, both for the delicious food and the exceptional ambiance provided by these walls adorned with centuries-old bricks. The Petit Palace Arenal will also captivate you with details that are part of its essence. Wooden staircases wind around a vintage lift, whose charm remains unaffected by its slowness and small size. Climb the stairs if you wish, and you'll get to see the original brick walls and hear the creaking wooden floor beneath your steps. This is the charm of authenticity.
