The Contemporary Art Museum in Santa Cruz de La Palma

The Museum of Contemporary Art of Santa Cruz de La Palma occupies the site of the house built around 1616 by Captain Juan Vandewalle de Aguiar. After a fire in the first third of the twentieth century, which ended with its demolition, the house was acquired by the City of Santa Cruz de La Palma, within its Plan of Tourism, to make it a museum. Its interior is distributed in three floors: the basement, with warehouse and reception area for artwork, auditorium, library and management offices; The first floor houses a collection of current Canarian art, with artists such as César Manrique, Juan Ismael or Manuel Millares. On the second floor, two other rooms host the Interpretation Center of Virgen de Las Nieves Descent, which offers an immersion experience in the lustral festivities of the Virgen de las Nieves.
