North-east façade of Liria Palace
The Liria Palace or Palacio de Liria is a Neoclassical palace in Madrid, Spain. Built around 1770 by the Duke of Berwick on designs of Ventura Rodríguez, in the early 19th century it passed to the inheritance of the House of Alba. All but the facades were destroyed during the Spanish Civil War. It has since been rebuilt and still remains a private residence, in part due to the persistence of the 18th Duchess of Alba, Duchess Cayetana de Alba. The interior shows remodeling touches by Edwin Lutyens. The palace contains a remarkable private collection of European art, including works by Dürer, El Greco, Goya, Mantegna, Murillo, Rembrandt, Ribera, Van Dyck, and Velázquez. It also houses the Alba Bible.
