Museo de América
Descripción Datos de contacto

Founded in 1941, the Museo de América accomodates impressive collections from different South American cultures: pre-Coloumbine, ethnographic and colonial. The most notable gems are the Treasure of the Quimbayas, the Paracas mummy and the Codex of Tudela (Aztec) and of Tro-Cortesiano (Mayan). The building, constructed between 1943 and 1954, is structured around a central landscaped courtyard and a cloister in the manner of colonial convents and palaces. Luis Moya and Luis Martínez Feduchi designed the architectural project. Surrounded by a tree-lined area, next to the Faro de la Moncloa (Moncloa Lighthouse), this emblematic building is part of the Complutense University Campus devoted to South America and to studying the links between the continent and Spanish culture.
