San Fernando Fine Art Royal Academy

The Accademia Museum preserves an exceptional heritage consisting of more than 1,400 paintings, 1,300 sculptures and 15,000 drawings, as well as prints, furniture, silverware and goldsmiths, porcelains and other decorative arts. The artistic collections of the Academy Museum, one of the best art galleries in Spain, cover five centuries and different schools, offering a complete journey through the history of art from the Renaissance to the most current trends of the XXI century. Its fifty-nine rooms, spread over three floors, exhibit masterpieces of Spanish, Italian and Flemish art. After the incorporation of the Superior School of Fine Arts at the Complutense University of Madrid in 1975 and its subsequent transformation into the Faculty of Fine Arts, the headquarters of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando made use of its spaces for the adaptation of a museum in which to exhibit the works that it had been treasuring throughout its academic history. After several years of renovations (1974-1983), the Museum was officially inaugurated in 1986 with the installation of the collections in thirty-five rooms distributed over two floors. Years later, in 2002, the exhibition space was expanded in the twenty-four rooms of the third floor, in addition to having an auditorium with capacity for one hundred people and a warehouse of works visible to the viewer.
