- Venue Description:
The former Encarnación Convent is next to the church by the same name, darkened with the pass of time. This convent, and now museum, was founded by the Dominican religious order in 1515. As well as being a closed convent, many members of renowned families from Bilbao are buried here, and it has served as a military garrison during various wars. The museum opened in 1995 after City Hall ceded the building to the Diocese and the Vizcaya regional government agreed to pay for its remodelling. The reward for visiting this museum is the beautiful square cloister in the middle of the convent, with Renaissance colonnade, and a wonderfully silent and atemporal feel.
