Estudios del Orfanato de El Pardo was part of Finca Vistalegre Carabanchel. Created in the early 1930s with the birth of the Second Republic, they used the grounds of the old Asilos de San Juan y Santa María in a pair of buildings near the Palacio Nuevo. One of the goals was to reduce the number of children on the street who were begging. It was state run, taking over the role of a few privately run institutions that predated it and were on or near the site. One of the people who taught here was Carmen Conde.
