Visit the Liria Palace in Madrid. The so-called "younger brother of the Royal Palace", residence of the House of Alba.
Built in the 18th century, Liria Palace is the official Madrid residence of the House of Alba, a family with an important and ancient lineage that is closely entwined with Spanish history.
For over six centuries its members have been important art collectors and custodians. In the pSalón Goya del Palacio de Liriaalace, their descendants showcase not only the magnificence of the exquisite building but also part of its private art collection, which is among the largest accumulated by European aristocrats. It ranges from works acquired more than five centuries ago to several Impressionists to more modern paintings, and features important works by Goya, such as his Duchess of Alba in White, and others by Velázquez, Murillo, Zurbarán, El Greco, Ribera, Rubens and Titian (including his portrait of the Duke). Visitors can now enjoy a unique collection that includes sculptures, tapestries, furniture and etchings distributed throughout the different rooms, as well as a spectacular library that contains historical documents.
The building which was commissioned by the third Duke of Berwick and Liria, Jacobo Fitz-James Stuart y Colón, was built between 1767 and 1785 by architects Louis Guilbert and Ventura Rodriguez (the man behind Cibeles and Neptuno fountains).
