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

After spending an afternoon on another day at the Royal Palace I decided to drop into Museo Cerralbo as it was only a block from my hotel. For me, visiting the Palace was great. It's so large and grand that it seems another world. Museo...More

Very nice and cosy museum in an old palace, very interesting collection. It's like having a private visit, really worth 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
