ciriaco1Casa Ciriaco, at number 84 Calle Mayor, is located in the building where, on May 31, 1906, the famous anarchist Mateo Morral threw a bomb, hidden in a bouquet of flowers, from a 5th storey window as the wedding cortege of King Alfonso XIII passed. Documental evidence of the wine cellar dates back to 1887. In 1929, Ciriaco opened the restaurant that still enjoys a well-deserved reputation. The famous journalist and writer, Julio Camba, liked to sit at the tables of Casa Ciriaco. Julio Camba’s friends now get together once a month as an ongoing homage to the Galician writer and journalist, who understood and enjoyed Madrilenian cuisine so well. The tertulia is presided over by the illustrator Mingote, who designed the original logo of Casa Ciriaco. This legendary Madrid restaurant, which serves traditional food, offers its clients Madrid-style chickpea stew and pepitoria de gallina (this is a recipe that is more than 100-years-old and consists of a chicken in a tasty wine, saffron and almond sauce).
