Chamberí neighborhood is full of history, and it has undergone many changes to become what it is today. Even the history of the origin of its name is interesting. When Napoleon troops settled in Madrid during the war of Independence, they chose Chamberí square to do it. The camp that settled here was named Chambéry, of French origin. Finally, they couldn’t carry out the invasion and they pull out. This is when the term Chambéry adopted its Spanish form: Chamberí.
