Corrala is a typical representation of Madrid’s architecture from XVI and XIX century. The necessity to accommodate a great number of newcomers gave a birth to this kind of buildings, especially popular in the districts of Lavapies, Latina and Palacio.
The entrances to all the apartments in Corralas are communicated through a central patio, where the social life of the community of neighbours take place. Formerly, the apartments were no bigger then 30 square meters and the neighbours shared toilets.
Nowadays there are about 500 corralas left in Madrid, some of them are in a pretty bad condition although there are some citizen movements taking an initiative of restoring this beautiful sign of madrilian architecture.
