It was only two blocks away from our hotel (Melia Galgos) and was the perfect size for a two hour visit while we were waiting for our rooms to be ready. Consider it a mini Prado with paintings from all of the major Spainish painters.

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.

Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights
frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With
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
reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of
