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

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

These visits are in collaboration with the Fundación MAPFRE Culture Area.

In 2001, the Venancio Blanco Religious Museum project was inaugurated, which was originally taken charge of by MAPFRE in 1996, for the Chapel of the palace of the Monte del Pilar estate, at El Plantío in Majadahonda (Madrid).

Venancio conceived of the Museum as a space for meditation, where art and religion came together to configure something new, which traditional icons had not contemplated before.

  • In the mornings from 10:30 am to 2:30 pm
