What to visit in Cuevas del Almanzora
It bears this name because it was the homonymous historian who made the donation of a collection of paintings and sculptures in the 20th century. Antonio Manuel Campoy was an art critic and collector, a graduate in philosophy and letters, a radio broadcasting technician, an editor for Radio Televisión Española, a jury member at the Durán Painting Awards and a member of several public and cultural institutions. He won awards such as the Medal for Merit in Fine Arts and the National Award for Art Critics.
This museum gathers an extensive collection of art, which includes nearly 400 paintings by artists such as Barcelo, Miro, Vela Zanetti and Pablo Picasso. However, one of its most striking elements is the Goya Room, a place that has a realistic cast bronze sculpture of the head of the renowned painter. There are 69 engravings of two of the most important collections of the famous Spanish painter.
