In another building of great historic importance is the magnificently restored Carmen Thyssen museum which contains a large collection of paintings which revolve around one theme – Andalucía in the eighteenth century. There are also a number of other interesting temporary exhibitions housed in the converted sixteenth-century town house, named after Carmen Cervera, socialite and art collector, third wife of Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza, whose private collection the gallery houses. The museum’s arrival has seen the regeneration of its surrounding area, with the ‘entorno Thyssen’ welcoming a number of boutique shops and eateries.
