NOTES: This palace was built for the 3rd Duke of Berwick and Liria, James Stuart Fitz-James, to designs by Ventura Rodriguez. The palace was almost completely destroyed by a bombing raid in 1936. Its faithful reconstruction, which lasted twenty years and involved Sir Edwin Lutyens (for interior rebuilding, circa 1950-1955), commenced once the Civil War was over.
