Religious Museum Visits

Home/Campus Monte del Pilar/Buildings/Religious Museum Visits

Guided visits to the Fundación MAPFRE Collection at the Venancio Blanco Religious Museum

These tours are carried out in collaboration with the Fundación MAPFRE Culture Area.

The Venancio Blanco Religious Museum project was commissioned by MAPFRE in 1996 and opened in 2001 in the Monte del Pilar chapel in El Plantío.

The sculptor Venancio Blanco conceived the museum as a space for meditation, where art and religion come together to shape something new, not previously contemplated by traditional iconography.
