At the beginning of the 1700s, with the arrival of the Bourbons to the throne, the city will go under great urban and social changes.
French influence can be felt in the palaces, the new decoration, the urbanism and green areas.

But it will be mainly Carlos III, an enlightened and modern monarch, who will completely change the city of Madrid turning it into a cosmopolitan city that will be able to compete with other great European capitals.

Welcome to the French ruling time.
