Turismo Madrid

Colmenar de Oreja

It's time to visit one of the most surprising museums in the region, dedicated to one of the most sought-after painters of its time and today almost unknown. 

Although his works cover various genres, Ulpiano Checa stands out in the area of historic painting. With impressive movement, his characters seem to come alive.

Located in the old Casa de los Siete Patios, the museum contains the largest collection of the work of the Madrid painter. This is the best collection dedicated to a single artist and a reference for all exhibit spaces in the region. The museum houses a large number of oil paintings, watercolours, engravings and illustrated books as well as some reference works and a lot of miscellaneous documentation about him.
