Casa de las Siete Chimeneas
One of Madrid's famous legends surrounds this Renaissance-style house with seven chimneys. Apparently, the woman who owned it had a relationship with King Felipe II. After she died, people claimed to see her ghost walking around on the rooftop every night. When the building was converted into a bank in 1880, workmen found the remains of a woman dating from the 16th Century along with several coins of the period. It's said that Felipe II himself had the seven chimneys built to represent the seven cardinal sins. The building is now the Ministry of Culture. Benlliure's statue depicting War of Independence hero, Lieutenant Ruiz, stands in the square outside.
