Only 3€ for a 19th century house with a rich variety of collections, including some big names, for example Zurbaran, Murillo and Greco. The luxury living style is also interesting too. The staff are very nice and helpful too.

I visited after seeing this house on TV and wasn't disappointed. The collection of paintings and artifacts by one rich man is astonishing. Note that you have to leave all bags, including handbags, in a locker so if you need glasses wear clothes with pockets!

Both the home itself and the family history made this an excellent stop. It is easily accessible by metro. Beautiful paintings, a decor the rivals the royal palace at times, and built by a man who played a part in Spanish history.

Visiting Museo Cerralbo is a must-see attraction in Madrid. It is beautiful, luxurious and breathtaking. I would recommend using the guided recordings so that you have a better understanding of the history and contents descriptions.

Like the Burrell in Glasgow or the Guggenheim in New York, this place reflects one person's tastes and travels. Eclectic doesn't begin to cover it. Becoming increasingly well known, and deservedly so. Don't wait, just go!

The former home of the Marquis de Cerralbo which gives a very good view into life of a wealthy Spanish aristocrat. Art, furniture, porcelain, armour - an amazing collection filling each beautiful decorated room. A small museum but definitely worth a visit if you appreciate...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
