What there is to see

The collection at the MIAC is a reflection of a generation of artists producing works between the Fifties and Seventies, along with any works falling outside that particular time period.

The fortress was built in the 18th Century during the reign of the Bourbon monarchy of Carlos III. There were then three military buildings: the Castillo de Santa Bárbara in Teguise; the Castillo de San Gabriel in Arrecife; and the Torre del Águila in the south of the island.
