During the tour of the Bourbons Gallery, we will analyze the enormous differences in taste and collecting passion that they had with respect to the Austrians. The Bourbons, prone to pomp and ornaments. The Austrians, to solemnity and grandeur.
And you will admire the privileged level that Spanish manufactures reached thanks to the Royal Factories created by Philip V, from which came wonderful decorative objects, furniture’s, lamps, chandeliers, mirrors, clocks, tapestries, silks, carpets, porcelain and marble that served to equip the comfortable palaces with the luxury to which the Bourbons were accustomed.
Our private tour of the Royal Collections Museum Madrid will be enriched by a pleasant walk through the Royal Garden of Campo del Moro, which was created as a testimony of a Queen’s love for her late husband, where we will take the opportunity to exchange impressions of the Building of Royal Collections Museum Madrid, which has given cause for all kinds of divergent comments.
