The art collection

A great little museum with a unique art collection (remove unique, with authentic works brought from Flanders and Andalusia in the 17th century).

Hispania Nostra Award for Best Practices in the Conservation of Cultural Heritage (2014), Hacienda de Abajo contains more than 1,300 works of art. French and Flemish tapestries from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries (the best collection in the Canary Islands), an excellent collection of paintings dating back to the 15th century, Chinese porcelain and statues from the Tang, Ming and Qing dynasties, European religious carvings from the 16th to 18th centuries and numerous sumptuary objects make up the largest contribution of artistic heritage to La Palma since the 17th century.

More than 1,300 works of art adorn the hacienda, the largest contribution of artistic heritage to the island of La Palma since the 17th century. The interior of the Hotel Hacienda de Abajo reflects the rich contents of the houses of the lords of the hacienda. 

For its decoration, sumptuary objects were imported from the 16th century onwards from trade with different parts of the world. Thus, from Antwerp, the international centre of the sugar trade, from Seville and the Indies came tapestries, furniture, devotional imagery, mirrors, paintings and carved silver, and even delicate Chinese porcelain, via the voyage that began with the Manila Galleon and continued with the fleets of the Indies.

Today, works of art of the same origin adorn the rooms and common areas of the revived hacienda, such as valuable French and Flemish tapestries from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries (the best collection in the Canary Islands), an excellent art gallery with works dating back to the 15th century, Chinese porcelain and statues from the Tang, Ming and Qing dynasties, European religious carvings from the 16th to 18th centuries and all kinds of other sumptuary objects.
