Lonely Planet review

This impressive contemporary art museum is one of several spaces in Cuenca devoted to modern art and sculpture, its galleries memorably occupying one of the casas colgadas . Begun as an attempt by Fernando Zóbel to unite the works of his fellow artists from the so-called Abstract Generation of the 1950s and '60s, the museum's constantly evolving displays include works by Eduardo Chillida, Antoni Tàpies and Manuel Millares.

Don't miss the extraordinary gouache landscapes by Eusebio Sempere, which really capture the colourful patterned plains of La Mancha, or Antonio Saura's crazy portraits of Brigitte Bardot and Philip II.
