Salzillo museum Iglesia Nuestro Padre Jesus
The Salzillo museum is really something special. When you enter you go with the elevator to the top of the building. It is than really fascinating to discover that the museum is built around the Church of Nuestro Padre Jesus. The church was built by Francisco Montiyuelo and Blas Lopez . In the 18th century the façade was completely remodelled and restored in the twentieth century. It became a museum in 1960 of the works of Francisco Salzillo. It was completely renewed in 2003 and the most important pieces are the 556 figures of the world famous Christmas Cribis. The brilliant wood carver lived from 1707 till 1781.
