A palace with works by Zurbarán and El Greco. And take a look at its decor as it's just as impressive.
On calle Ventura Rodríguez, at around number 17 you will find the Museo Cerralbo. This is the private collection of the family of Enrique de Aguilera and Gamboa, the Marquis of Caerralbo in the seventeenth century. To provide some background information, it was a very influential family from the sixteenth to the twentieth century and, after the death of Enrique de Aguilera, they donated a large part of their heritage to be exhibited. Inside, not only can you see tremendous collections of paintings and prints but the residence itself has preserved the décor and aesthetics of each period that the family lived here. On its walls you can see works by Zurbarán, El Greco and Alonso Cano and even drawings by Tadeo Zuccaro (a highlight of the exhibition). However, we insist that you focus on the décor from the looms to the ceramic pieces. Time appears to have stood still in here in order to show you how this family lived. Open from Tuesday to Saturdays.
