Here we leave you some proposals so that you can get to know our territory and discover why Castellón is so special.

The Museu de Belles Arts opened its doors in 2001, although its origins go back to 1854, the year in which it was founded. This museum is one of the oldest in the Valencian Community.

It revolves around a landscaped cloister with magnificent cypresses, belonging to the old Serra Espadá school.

It contains the artistic collection of the Hon. Provincial Council of Castellón and various deposits, donations and legacies of important artists.

In it you can enjoy an exhibited collection arranged thematically. The Archaeological section includes pieces found in the province, from the Paleolithic period to the Middle Ages. The Ceramics area is the most important, containing more than a thousand pieces. And in the Painting section we find canvases by Ribera, Ribalta or Sorolla.

Under the name of Museu de Belles Arts, four blocks are grouped around a cloister. And the permanent collections are divided into three large areas: Archaeology-Ethnology, Ceramics and Painting-Sculpture.
