While the key galleries of Madrid, like the Prado or T.B are must sees, we went to this museum largely based on reviews on this site and we weren't disappointed. While a gallery gives you the space to reflect on one piece of art, this mansion provides you with a fuller view; a real sense of life of the aristocracy in Madrid at the turn of the century. The home is only 120 yrs old, but it was designed to showcase the Marquis's passion for collecting ( swords, furniture, ornaments, paintings) and to entertain and impress his guests. It continues to do so today!

There was almost no-one else present when we visited and you can view at your own pace, read as little or as much as you want and take photos. Make sure to visit!

This is a lesser known museum in Madrid, but it is well worth a visit. It is a large palace with many rooms filled with gorgeous, ornate period furniture, chandeliers, objects of art, paintings. etc. The enormous wealth of the aristocrat that owned this place is very evident! You will be awed by all the beauty here.
We had to wait about 20 minutes outside in line before let being let in. There is a timed-entry apparently. That said, the museum was not crowded. It was just such a pleasant, leisurely visit. I would have wished for some chairs/benches to sit and rest from time to time though. We were allowed to sit in the guards' chairs if the guard was not sitting there though. Allow about 3 hours to thoroughly enjoy this beautiful place!

Located a bit out of the way (near Plaza de Espana), this 19th century mansion is a step back in time. It has some very nice artifacts, and the admission is the most reasonable in Madrid (only 3 Euros). Not very crowded either. Recommended.

I just happened to be passing this place and decided to stop in. I am glad I did because the mansion was packed with so many interesting things... You will even see artifacts from prehistory as the owner was an avid collector of seemingly everything. I liked the column room- a collection of columns of all different shapes and sizes topped with different figurines. The paintings on the ceiling are incredible and it is easy to feel the wealth and luxury of the place. You will also see how many rooms are devoted to smoking and men's meetings, this displays a man's world! Also, I lucked out, in that I went on a free day!

This is time travel back to the time of a true aristocrat. This old mansion is amazing enough as a place to live let alone packed with beautiful artworks, furniture, crockery and other fascinating things. Nicely preserved and still being improved, this is a must see in Madrid and we loved it. Highly recommended. A good look at this mansion takes about an hour.
