Fundación Vela Zanetti

Fundación Vela Zanetti Review

Hidden away just north of the cathedral is this contemporary art museum, constructed using minimalist wood beams and glass panels inside a 15th-century mansion. Zanetti was a 20th-century Castilian artist with a penchant for warm tones. Some of his portraits recall El Greco. The art and structure both make for a pleasant surprise.
