Discover the first flights undertaken in Madrid, and the early 20th century society that was mesmerised by the miracle of flight.
The exhibition Conquering the Air. 1909-1911. The Origin of Aviation in Spain, organised by the ENAIRE Foundation and Conde Duque Cultural Centre, revisits the forgotten origins of aviation in our country, more specifically, the first flights undertaken in Madrid. They were events that made history just over a century ago, but are little known to today’s general public.
