San Felipe El Real convent was one of the most important epicenters of the political and cultural life in Madrid from its founding in 1544 until its demolition in 1841. Located at the ‘heart’ of the city, San Felipe had not only the church and convent, but also adjacent spaces such as the bleachers and the so-called ‘covachuelas’ (small shops attached to the church walls) that turned this architectural complex into an open space for the city. This paper aims to reconstruct this disappeared ‘heart’ of Madrid through documentary, textual and iconographic sources from 1598 until 1718
