The activities of the Caja Madrid Foundation aim to promote cultural heritage and include awarding grants and prizes, publishing books and sponsoring artistic restorations. Important exhibitions are held at this venue.
The Caja Madrid Foundation headquarters are also known as Casa de las Alhajas and Casa del Monte. The façade is a clear example of architecture from the second half of the 19th century. Inside, organised around a central, roofed courtyard, the building has been modelled for use as a temporary exhibition space.
