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

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
