Something of Note

The Madrid Royal Conservatory (Spanish: Real Conservatorio Superior de Música de Madrid) is a music college in Madrid, Spain.

 

History

The Royal Conservatory of Music was founded on July 15, 1830, by royal decree, and was originally located in Mostenses Square, Madrid. In 1852 it was moved to the Royal Opera, where it remained until the building was condemned by royal order and classes ordered to halt in 1925. For the next sixty-five years, the school had no fixed home, operating in a variety of locations. Since 1990, the Conservatory has officially resided in a restored 18th-century building (previously San Carlos Royal Hospital) in front of Queen Sofia Museum.
