In 61 of the Calle Mayor of Madrid, there is a very narrow building, which in turn is the house where Pedro Calderon de la Barca lived for eighteen years, until his death on the 25th May 1681.
In those days, it only he had two floors and was called “the narrow house” because of its facade, just 4.36 meters wide. In the nineteenth century, two more floors were added, which made it as it is today with four floors.
On the outside wall, you can see the white marble plaque, placed in 1859, with the legend “Here lived and died Dn. Pedro Calderon de la Barca “.

However, there is another building, even narrower on the street San Vicente Ferrer, 24, in the neighborhood of Malasaña, but this does not have a history known to us.
