Located in the heart of Madrid’s trendiest neighborhoods - Malasaña and Chueca - Museo del Romanticismo, gives you an insight into the history, art and daily life in Spain during the Romantic Era (European intellectual movement during the 1800s). The Romantic period in Spain witnessed a flowering in the arts and literature; and this museum celebrates that period with over 1,400 objects ranging from grand pianos, diamond-studded stickpins, Orientalist paintings, paisley wall hangings and toy soldiers. These collections offer an insight into the life and times of 19th century upper-class houses.

The best-known work in the collection is Goya’s San Gregorio Magno, Papa. The other equally famous one is the portrait of the 19th-century essayist Mariano José de Larra, who became the ultimate Romantic hero when he killed himself in 1837 over a love gone wrong.

Do not miss the Coffee Shop in the courtyard...it is nicknamed 'Romantic Cafe' for all the right reasons.
