Art on the walls
The Liria Palace is the main residence of the Duke and Duchess of Alba, and on its walls hang one of the most important private collections of Spanish art.
Gilbert, Ventura Rodríguez and later, Sabatini all took part in the building of this neoclassical monument. It was almost completely destroyed in 1936, although reconstruction began once the Civil War had ended. The building has three staggered floors; the façade has windows with Doric pilasters, and is finished with pediments decorated with motifs in the style of Louis XVI.
