Unfortunately we didn't allow nearly enough time to fully appreciate this terrific museum. Widely varied collection of top quality pieces. Check out the miniatures!

Off the beaten path, the collection and mansion of Lazaro Galdiano and his wife is a must-visit. The mansion itself is stunning inside and the hard wood floors and painted ceilings are pieces of art themselves. The collection is fabulous and includes some masterpieces (Goya,...More

I had never heard of Lazaro Galdiano before, but after visiting the museum I can appreciate how he and his wife devoted their lives and their vast wealth to acquiring all of these precious works of art. The house is beautiful, and provides a good...More

The house and the art are definitely worth seeing. This museum was not busy at all, so it was easy to see everything in under two hours. If you enjoy art and architecture, don’t skip this one!

No, I think not. Mr Galdiano was obviously a very enthusiastic collector and a very interesting man. But he was not discriminating when it came to choosing works of art. There are numerous works which are of very dubious authenticity. However, its a lovely house,...More

Housed in the mansion of Lazaro Galdiano this contains sculptures, paintings and smaller objects. Like Museo Cerralbo the mansion location and lighting may not always suit the display of artworks like ivories. For example light shining on paintings or space restrictions, the top floor has...More

Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights

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
