Marquis of Valdecilla museum

The Museum

The Marqués de Valdecilla Museum is the main building of the Marqués de Valdecilla Estate. Although the figure of Ramón Pelayo de la Torriente is present in the museum’s permanent exhibition as a thematic axis, the space also addresses the Indian culture of those characters who emigrated to America and achieved economic and social success. Many of them would return to their places of origin developing patronage activity in the educational and cultural, health, public works or social fields. The exhibition is complemented by a guided tour of La Casuca, home of the Marchioness of Pelayo and niece of the Marquis, and San Rafael, a guest house with a chapel. Likewise, the museum has two temporary exhibition rooms.
