Well worth a visit even if just to look at the house itself. The collection of artifacts was huge and you can easily spend a whole morning or afternoon here.

Love this little museum. I think it costs about 6 euros. A little bit of something for everyone. Coins, artwork, textiles, jewelry, and an impressive armory upstairs. Really enjoyed seeing the variety. Takes only about an hour.

The collection is mostly amazing in that there is a little of everything from many periods and cultures. It won't take long to see everything and admire the residence.

If you stay in Madrid for some time, it is a quaint, small museum which you can visit an hour. Not the most fabulous collection but the house is nice.

Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights

beautiful condominium buildings that make up most
blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and
quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large
shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle
Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will
