Mapfre Foundation. Recoletos Exhibition Hall

Maximum venue capacity has been reduced. Face masks are mandatory and social distancing rules must be followed at all times. The centre has hand sanitisers dispensers and has implemented enhanced cleaning processes.

Devoted to the exhibition of plastic arts, created by diverse artists from the last third of the 19th century through to just after the Second World War, this hall, opened in 2008, is located in a building constructed between 1881 and 1884 by the architect, Agustín Ortiz de Villajos, for the Duchess of Medina de Torres. The Espacio Miró, a hall that offers a permanent exhibition of the great artist from Catalonia, Joan Miró, is next to it.

The building originally consisted of a height of four floors and semi-basement, but in 1910 two towers were built in the corners. After a series of refurbishment and restructuring projects, the building now has an exhibition area with an approximate surface of 1,000 m2, divided into three halls.

This foundation organises painting, sculpture and drawing exhibitions with a focus on the period spanning from the last third of the 19th century to after World War II.

Mapfre Foundation has another exhibition hall in Madrid called Sala Bárbara de Braganza. Located very close to Sala Recoletos, it is dedicated to the great masters of photography.
