Museo Salzillo. Salzillo Museum.


20th century. Located in Church of Jesus in 1957. This church was declared a Historic Artistic national Monument in 1935 and the museum pieces were added in 1962. It is the appropiate location to convey the important legacy of the Murcian sculptor Francisco Salzillo; it is contains different floats of the Holy Week processions, a series of sculptures not related to the Passion and rough draft sketches, and a nativity scene, created between 1780-1800 for Jesualdo Riquelme, which was started by Salzillo and completed by his apprentice Roque López.
