Madrid is filled to the brim with a wealth of striking art collections, including museums, galleries, and exhibit rooms. Adorned by the most impressive array of private and government-owned artworks, these attractions make Madrid a goldmine of invaluable artworks. One such attraction is the Palace of Liria (or Palacio de Liria), located right in the heart of Madrid, in the neighbourhood of Conde Duque. This 18th-century city palace once served as the residence and headquarters of the House of Alba in Madrid.
The Liria Palace is hosting an exhibition called “100 Years Discovering Tutankhamun” from December 1st until April 30th. The exhibition commemorates the centenary of one of the great discoveries of world archaeology and focuses on the important role played by the XVII Duke of Alba in organizing conferences that renowned archaeologist Howard Carter gave on Tutankhamun’s tomb in Madrid in 1924 and 1928.
Schedule: December 1, 2022 to April 30, 2023

Experience the history of Spain’s most distinguished lineages at the Liria Palace. Peruse through documents, sculptures, tapestries, pictures, and other works as you roam the halls, and feel traces of centuries past. Get to know about this well-known family in Spain, along with major events that took place in Spanish history.
Perhaps the most outstanding part of the Liria Palace is its library. Divided into three large showcases with over 18,000 volumes, you’ll find the so-called ‘Bible of the Casa de Alba’, an edition of Don Quixote from 1605, the Columbus showcase (largest collection of Christopher Columbus’ autographs, letters, receipts), and valuable documents of the Dukes of Berwick, or James II of England.
Stroll past decorative arts scattered across the rooms, including paintings, sculptures, tapestries, furniture, documents, engraving, and a large set of porcelain. Foremost are the paintings by great artists like Goya, Velázquez, Murillo, Zurbarán, El Greco, Ribera, Rubens, Titian, Palma Vecchio, Jan Brueghel the Elder, Madrazo and Winterhalter.
On this audio-guided tour, you’ll have access to the 14 main rooms, spread across the ground and first floors of the palace. Don’t forget to visit the palace gardens, one of the palace’s most sought-after areas, thanks to its English romantic aesthetic and a touch of French luxury with its large fountain in the centre.
