A very nice art museum that begs the question, "What Is Art?" You'll find all sorts of examples of modern art located within an absolutely beautiful building with an amazing view. Sculpture, paintings, objects, fabrics, and more that push the boundaries. The collection deserves a...More

So much to see and such an exlectic collection. Antonio Perez was not afraid to champion anything which appealed to him. Such a variety of styles are exhibited. Really enjoyed it and my husband too and he is not such an art enthusiast as me...More

A multi-roomed gallery in a former Carmelite convent, with windows and terraces giving onto amazing views from its cliff-top position. Antonio Pérez has collected groups of everyday items and given them (an often funny) twist. The earnest can find a series of lessons on the...More

If you are in Cuenca this is something you shouldn't miss. An hour here should leave you smiling and delighted. Collections of "found objects" ...tens of toy robots... heart shaped pebbles and stones ....add some twisted metal...pieces of wood that look like faces or people......More

We are fans of modern art so were bound to like this place. However, there is plenty of interest for just about anyone. The building is also pretty impressive. The staff were helpful and enthusiastic. Even if you would not usually visit a contemporary art...More

We had no idea what we were getting into, when we entered. This place goes on forever, and is wonderful. I don't particularly like modern art. I'm more of a realist. I didn't expect to like this museum, but boy was I surprised. There is...More

This is a vast gallery that has been installed into a sprawling convent which provides for a variety of gallery spaces (including courtyards opening onto the edge of the gorge). The collection is broad and provocative (I don't think the nuns would have approved). Bibindum...More

This is a quirky museum of modern art, and also the collector's "found objects" that look like art. It is really a lot larger than expected, with rooms spread out over multiple levels. Entrance fee is only 2 Euros, so it's worth taking a peek...More
