The Museo del Romanticismo encapsulates an important period in Spanish arts, culture, and architecture, the Romantic period, displaying art, décor, furniture, and historical artefacts original to the 19th century, including the building which houses it. The original site of the Marquis de Matallana’s home, the building which currently sits on the Calle San Mateo is a Neoclassical palace that was constructed in 1774 and remodelled into a historical museum in 1924. The building has undergone a series of renovations since that time in order to preserve and enhance its classical Romantic features, and it was most recently reopened in 2011.

The Museum of Romanticism aims to reconstruct down to the smallest detail the style of living popularized in the 19th century. The Romanticism movement was known for its highly emotional and dramatic style, and in Spain this was most strongly seen in its literature. The museum captures this feeling in the authentic art and décor on display, including the personal articles and writings of renowned Romantic authors, Mariano José de Larra, José Zorrilla, and Juan Ramon Jimenez. On a visit to the museum, visitors will be transported back to the 19th century, strolling through over twenty meticulously recreated rooms filled with authentic paintings, furniture, and personal effects from the Romantics themselves.
