Lazaro Galdino is another Spanish artist. This Museum contains many other items besides a collection of his paintings. The most notable sections are the Treasury and the Armoury. The Triptych of The Nativity by Garcia Del Barco is one of the most noticeable paintings.

A delightful museum housed in the mansion of the man whose fortune purchased the displayed items... the most interesting of which are probably the treasuries on the ground floor. Spoiled a little by being over-priced, a sprinkling of modern nonsense from the Coca Cola collection,...More

If you're a house museum lover, odds are you'll largely be disappointed with this museum. The mansion is beautifully maintained, but it's not furnished, the guides don't deal with the house itself, and there really isn't much to see or find out about the house...More

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
