    Real Academia Espa��ola

    Modelled after France's Académie Française, the Real Academia Española regulates the Spanish language. Although the Academia was founded in the early 18th century, it wasn't until 1894 that the institution moved into the existing building (see photograph). The Academia is located next behind el Prado and right next to San Jerónimo.
