Madrid travel Guide: Liria Palace - Palacio de Liria

This sober, neo-classical Liria palace, completed in 1783 and refurbished in the 1910s by Edwin Lutyens, is still very much the private property of Spain's premier aristocrat, the Duchess of Alba. The extraordinary collection of the Liria Palace includes work by Rembrandt, Palma Vecchio, Titian and Rubens, and one of the most important Goyas in private hands: his portrait of an earlier Duchess of Alba in red and white. The problem is, the current duchess has no need to open her palace to public view. Space on the Friday guided tours has to be requested several weeks in advance.
