19th-century palace located on Calle Arenal de Madrid. Built between 1846 and 1847 by architect Aníbal Álvarez Bouquel, it was commissioned by banker and stockbroker Manuel Gaviria y Douza, Marquis of Gaviria. One of the most luxurious palaces of its time, it copied the style of Italian Renaissance palaces, with their Roman prototypes and neoclassical influences.

It was opened by Queen Isabel II in 1851 and was famous in its time for the parties held there, which could be observed from the street through the lounge balconies. Especially noteworthy are the frescoes in the lounges, which are the work of Joaquín Espalter y Rull. It was declared a Place of Cultural Interest in 1977.

From 1991 to 2011, it housed the Gaviria Palace disco, and, after some years of disuse, it reopened in 2017 as an exhibition space for Arthemisia, the international Italian company devoted to the production and organisation of major and outstanding exhibitions (Escher, Alphonse Mucha or Duchamp, Dali and Magritte).
