We manage, disseminate and conserve the Banco Santander Collection, formed over more than 160 years by the various financial institutions that are integrated into what is now Banco Santander.
Its collections cover a wide historical period from the 2nd century BC to the present day. The main part of the collection is made up of paintings, although it also has interesting examples of sculpture, decorative arts and a complete numismatic collection, with coins and banknotes that offer a unique journey through the history of Spain.
Through loans of works of art from the Banco Santander Collection, we fulfil the dual purpose of disseminating and promoting knowledge of art, as well as supporting other museums and cultural institutions by collaborating in their exhibition projects.
