The Museo de Escultura al Aire Libre de La Castellana only contains 17 pieces on display but it’s uniquely located under a bridge.

Artist Eusebio Sempere decided to recreate the area under the bridge as a place for residents to enjoy contemporary art. The Museo de Escultura al Aire Libre de La Castellana was eventually inaugurated in 1979.

This open-air sculpture museum serves as a captivating fusion of art and urban environment, offering visitors a unique opportunity to engage with monumental works of contemporary Spanish sculptors in a public setting. Its location along the bustling Paseo de la Castellana transforms the city’s streets into an artistic promenade, democratizing access to art and fostering a sense of communal appreciation for sculptures.
