Benigno Montoya Funerary Art Museum

Permanent Exhibit

The Panteón de Oriente with more than 150 years of existence, is the holder of a series of monuments, sculptures with great artistic value that made him worth to be declared in 2002 as Benigno Montoya Funerary Art Museum. Visiting a cemetery is not an attractive idea, however, from the artistic point of view, it’s worth it. The museum is dedicated to the talented quarry master Benigno Montoya Muñoz whose sculptures, full of symbolisms, guarantee the visitor a singular tour full of mystery and sensitivity.

Here, stand out crossed decorated, dying doves, neo-classic and neo-gothic chapels, a relief from the Passion, two mourners in life-size and a great number of angel where Montoya creates his own version taking iconographic elements from the Judeo-Christian tradition.
