Contemporary Art Museum of Alicante



The Contemporary art museum of Alicante- MACA is housed in the city’s oldest surviving civil building. In the baroque style, it dates back to 1685 and is located next to the Santa María basilica in the old town of Alicante City. It was originally designed as a cereals warehouse but was also used as a business school before finally becoming a museum.

The MACA Museum houses an important collection of 20th century art mostly comprised of works donated by Eusebio Sempere. There are also works by Chillida, Picasso, Dalí and Miró, among others.
