Pedro Ribera built this old hospice with a spectacular baroque style in the 18th Century. It was officially declared a national historic monument in 1919. The museum displays the city's history through a combination of archaeological remains, drawings, photos, coins, stamps, postcards, furniture, and other decorative objects. The 1830 model of Madrid by Palacio and the reconstruction of writer Serna's office are particularly interesting. The 19th- and 20th-century historical portraits by Madrazo, Sorolla and Eduardo Arroyo along with paintings by Goya, Eugenio Lucas, and Luca Giordano all make this place worth visiting to gain an insight into Madrid's history.
