The Carmen Thyssen Art Museum was opened in 2011. His excellent collection is mainly Spanish painting of the 19th and 20th centuries, with particular emphasis on Andalusian artists. Over 200 works of art will delight not only enthusiasts of impressionism. The pearl of the collection are paintings by 'Retrato de Julia' by Ramon Casas and 'La Corrida de Toros' by Ignacio Zuloaga.
The museum is located in a building whose heart is a beautiful, 16th century residence - Palacio de Villalon. The extension and adaptation of the building for museum purposes cost nearly 20 million euros. During the renovation, Roman remains were found under the palace and a Byzantine style fountain was unveiled.
The name of the object comes from the world famous art collector Carmen Cervery, later Baroness Thyssen-Bornemisza. The core of the museum exhibition are paintings from its private collections, which have been collected for over 30 years.
