The Fine Arts Museum of Alava
The Fine Arts Museum of Alava is housed in the residence of the Count of Dávila constructed in 1912 by the architects Luque and Apraiz in the Renaissance "revival" style, with regard both to the architecture and its internal and external ornamentation. In 1962, the building and collections were declared a monument of historical and artistic interest. In 1965, the architect, Guinea, extended the building to the rear and this is joined to the original building a means of a covered passageway.
