Also know as the Palacio de Superunda - this has recently been converted and upgraded and what a surprise. With Avila in lockdown this one of the few museums open. The costs of entry varies between 2-4 Euros but its worth. The Museum is in an old Royal Palace and hosts the collection of the arts Caprotti who was a painter of the local area - dont let that put you off. The Museum is great - some stunning collections and rooms equipped from the artists studio and then the building itself. This is a delightful visit and dont miss the two excellent Sorolla paintings either.

I had the good fortune to be able to spend an hour or so admiring the work of Guido Caprotti, an artist I was not familiar with. The person at the front desk was very friendly and took time to describe the best route to be taken. Added bonuses: I was the only visitor in attendance and I happened to visit between 1400 -1600 on a Tuesday, so admission was free! The House of Superunda is dated between 1580 and 1595; however, like most Renaissance palaces, it was built on the site of an earlier building. In the 20th century, it was bought by the Italian painter Guido Caprotti, who had been associated with the town since 1916. Today, it belongs to the Town Hall of Ávila and, after its refurbishment in 2011, it is used as a museum for works by the aforementioned painter and for other cultural purposes.

First of all, closed for lunch, so go early or late. Funky as can be as the art is all from the 1940's and 50's. No one seemed to know why. It was fun nevertheless less.

While strolling around Avila, I passed by this palace cum museum but didn't visit it. The gates were locked and there wasn’t anyone around. I presumed it was closed when I was there around 1:30pm and moved on.
