Whilst there's a good array of art and artefacts to view here, I was disappointed by how badly lit a lot of the works of art were, so much so that you had to try and find an angle suitable enough to view the detail, which was often obscured by the poor lighting. There are some hidden gems among the... More

This was the most disappointing art gallery we visited during our stay in Madrid. There were very few visitors here which should have made it a pleasant experience. However, the custodians clearly had little to do so virtually followed my husband and I around in a very officious and intrusive manner. At the end of the visit we went to... More

An inexpensive place to visit if you are on a tight budget. You could easily walk around for 2/3 hours as there is so much to see.

It is amazing what a single person can collect in a lifetime. And this is an extraordinary example of it. From weapons to ceramics, sculpture, paintings, china and innumerable more things. Some interesting originals from El Greco and Goya. Definitely worth a visit. The building is very interesting too: the house of a rich family of the early 20th century.... More

This was by far one of the best museums we visited in Spain. The collection of art, weapons, sculptures and frescos were amazing. My 11 year old son never once said he was bored and wanted to leave. There is so much to see here, you do not know what to take a picture of next. Also across the street... More

The building is a beautiful, four stories building, which in on it iitself is a work of art. Inside you will find an impressive art collection from all over the world including pieces form ancient cultures, (Greek, Roman, Egyptian, etc.) Numerous paintings from Goya, Velazquez, El Greco, but also from England, Germany, the Netherlands and even the US. There are... More

Huge array of items to see over 3or 4 levels and mostly well set for viewing. They need a professional art arranger as many excellent paintings were visually below par due to misplaced lighting causing too much glare on part of the paintings. Loved the religious artefacts and the early weaponry. Plenty of guards either glaring or walking close as... More

In this palace you can enjoy a incredible collection of art, from goyas uniq paintings, to grate sculpture.

Staying in Barrio de Salamanca

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighborhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
