Picture Perfect Palace

The end result of a very intriguing saga of love and heartbreak (and incest), this beautiful palace was built by Jose Murga in the mid-late 19th century to alleviate the pain of finding out his wife was his half-sister. It was (and still is) the most opulent of its kind in Madrid. The building has many marble floors and walls, with elegant and expensive decor and furniture everywhere. Incredible and rare works of art can also be seen.

Utrip Tips

*The palace is only open on weekends, and only available to visit through guided tours so be sure and purchase tickets at El Punto de información de Casa de América in El Corte Ingles beforehand.

Open in Google Maps: Paseo de Recoletos, 2 28001, Spain
