The charm of a palace

A historic house and museum of atmospheres, the Cerralbo Museum palace is unique because it preserves the original atmosphere of the time when it was the residence of the Marquis of Cerralbo and his family.

The Cerralbo Museum is a reference in Spanish collecting and preserves the essence of the time when don Enrique de Aguilera y Gamboa, seventeenth Marquis of Cerralbo (1845-1922), built the palace and made it his home and a space to keep his collections and host his intense social and political life.

The rooms, furnished according to the taste of the late 19th century, and the works of art it holds, reflect the lifestyle of the aristocracy from Madrid of the time, and the interest of don Enrique de Aguilera in getting one of the most valued private art collections of his time, which he left to the Spanish State in 1922.

Essential works


The museum's collection is part of the collective catalogue of the Digital Network of Spanish Museum Collections (CERES), conceived as a space for dissemination which enables visitors to browse the various museum collections using the identifying features of each item (author, type of object, iconography, etc.).
