An amazing trip into one family's luxurious past

The last owner of this grand mansion was a nobleman who filled it with his amazing collections of armor, artworks, clocks and antiquities. The entrance staircase is breathtaking.

The Cerralbo museum in madrid houses a private collection of works of art, arqueological objects and other antiquities collected by the Marquis of Cerralbo during his lifetime. Additionally, a visit to the Museum will transport the visitor to a 19th Century palace which includes the original furniture. It is a small museum but full of interesting halls and details. Well...

A €3 cost and cost well worth the price, a small colourful collection of bueatiful antiquities, in a nice area looked like it was maned by volunteers. These volunteers are very helpful, on entry you have the opertunity of a audio tour or a simple book tour, the book has information on paintings,armour,china, pottery and bueatiful furniture and the building...

Historic impressive mansion close to the royal castle. This is both the former home of an aristocrat and a museum for his collections. Good insight into history and customs of a rich family around 1900. Tip: get the audio guide, it is worth it.

We spent an interesting morning at The Museo Cerralbo. We had a great guide who explained in detail about the Marquis of Cerralbo, the pretender to the Spanish throne. Beautiful house in a very modern urban area.

This was just near my hotel. Sunday morning at 10:00am free visit - almost had the place to myself. It's very OTT but well worth a visit. Printed guide in English and staff were very helpful in allowing me to use the lift.

Staying in Arguelles

Neighbourhood Profile
Arguelles
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 counterparts, and there is an array of casual dining options to choose from. Check out nearby outdoor spaces such as the lushly planted Plaza de España to the south, which is often filled with craft stalls. To the west of Arguelles is the giant Parque Oueste, a calm and picturesque park with its own Egyptian temple.
