Located at 6 Fernando VI street, where Ferando VI intersects with Pelayo, lies the most important example of modernism in Madrid. The building was constructed by the architect José Grases Riera at the beginning of the past century for the financier D. Javier Gonzáles Longoria. Since 1950, it’s been the permanent headquarters of the Sociedad General de Autores de España (SGAE - General Society of Spanish Authors). The splendidly conserved, glass-covered interior cupola of the Casa Maumegean stands out, as does the main staircase. Both the interior and the exterior of the building provide great examples of 20th century modernism in its purist form.
