If you like looking at rich people's houses, this is right for you. They give you a booklet that you can read the description of each room, but I find that to be a pain. It was worth the 2.50 euros to rent the audio...More

This was my favorite part of my trip to Madrid. The museum is not as crowded as others, and the staff is helpful. I liked that guests were given hand-held paper notebooks with descriptions of the rooms and items of note. I felt like I...More

It was a unusual experience to walk through a home largely preserved as it was in the time of the owner. We all enjoyed it.

Just south of the sprawling campus of the Complutense
University of Madrid, Arguelles exudes a fast-paced,
collegiate vibe. The main street, Calle Princesa, is
filled with twenty-somethings rushing between classes
and errands, meeting up with classmates, and grabbing
cheap beers and cheap eats. This is a prime shopping
spot where the major Spanish clothing and department
store chains are less busy than their downtown
