Welcome to El Doce, at C/ La Bolsa 12. A new place for Mediterranean cuisine in the deep part of Madrid.

     A historic building

The restaurant, with a capacity for 170 guests, is located in a historic building in the heart of the city’s old town and has witnessed a variety of owners and purposes along the centuries.
The ancient chapel of Santa Cruz, linked to the Templars, once stood at this location during the middle ages. Some time later, according to the city’s archives, it became a Spanish Inquisition dungeon.
Then it went abandoned and derelict for a couple of centuries until it was refurbished in a lavish Baroque style to become Madrid’s first stock market. In this period, the street where it’s located gets its current name from this new purpose: Calle de La Bolsa (Stock Market Street) According to the legend, and due to this new concentration of wealth and power, the building also held gatherings of the city’s Freemasons. It is believed that a secret tunnel was excavated to connect it with the Royal Palace. The columns and Baroque vault from this period are listed as protected heritage and are a reminder of the building’s mysterious aristocratic past.
