We were looking forward to visiting but after checking out the website for the hours we got there to find that it was closed at a time it was to be open. Very disappointing!

Located very conveniently in front of the Cibeles fountain, this another jewel of Madrid’s opulent class. This palace home was once the home to the Marques de Linares and his wife Raimunda. There is a lot of mystery and stories abounding about the former owners...More

Good architecture just as almost all palaces. Since it is located in Cibeles Square, the visit is worth it.

A fabulous alternative to the royal palace, at least with respect to appearance, if not history. You can go on your own, but we went on a one hour tour they offer on weekends at 11 12 or 1. The tour begins with an 8-minute...More

Went to the top of the building for a 360 view of the city. Maps were located at each side to recognize what are the buildings about. Do not regret the experience.

We went to the Palacio de Linares and we saw one exhibition of the Inca Garcilaso and another of the life of Santa Teresa. Both exhibitions were very good and informative.

This is a fascinating Palace to visit as it is a 19th Century building used by the Marquis de Linares. The splendour of its staircase reminds me of Museo Ceralbo. This also has an ornate ballroom, a beautiful oriental room and a gala dining room....More

There are better palaces in Madrid to visit (Real, Liria, Cerralbo), but this one is very well restored and situated in the heart of the city.

Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights

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
