We stopped in as this place opened in the morning and it was one of the highlights of our time in Madrid. An old home of a local bureaucrat (I think) was exquisitely decorated with many beautiful artifacts of all kinds. Really enjoyed our time...More

This is well worth a visit. A restored palace showing how people lived years ago, it is full of interesting treasures and photos. As a bonus the explanations are also given in English, not something you get everywhere in Madrid. Make sure to visit the...More

This Palace has been restored to its former glory and gives a real insight into how the rich lived in the past. There is a beautiful enclosed garden. The museum was free when we visited on a Sunday but be careful as there are strange...More

This place is so under represented and often overlooked, but it was an incredible experience. It is so posh and packed with everything you wish you could own or at least afford. It's good to be the Marquis.

Highly recommended, if you are into to see how the spanish aristocracy lived, very impressive rooms, I think I loved it more than the Palacio Real, pictures allowed inside, very very friendly staff, just a few minutes from the Palacio Real

This place is a hidden gem. It is richly decorated with antique objects and ornaments all throughout. Offers free admission on weekends. Although it is to be understood that attendants there have to ensure people do not tough any of the objects, they are perhaps...More

This is a small museum/mansion. It gives you an idea about the life of the rich(Cerralbo) in the old centuries. Around 27 lovely rich rooms spread out between two levels. The furniture, the layout, the art used within is truly impressive. 5 euros includes an...More

This is a very good museum. Much of it was closed for restorations, but what we did see was splendid. Most rooms are kept as they were originally(some reproductions of course to preserve the originals) and the audio explains the history and the significance of...More

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

It's in the center of Madrid, you're never far from shops anywhere in the center.
