Headquarters of the museum [edit]

The poor condition of the Patio Herreriano and its adjacent chapels made it obligatory to undergo a major restoration and reconstruction. The architects of the rehabilitation project, which has been led by Juan Carlos Arnuncio, Clara Aizpun and Javier Blanco, have designed an organization that perfectly combines the historic part with new bill traces.
