Lazaro Galdino is another Spanish artist. This Museum contains many other items besides a collection of his paintings. The most notable sections are the Treasury and the Armoury. The Triptych of The Nativity by Garcia Del Barco is one of the most noticeable paintings.

Well worth visiting when in Madrid. The collection is extensive and the building it is housed in is beautiful. Recommended.

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
