in detail

First it was the Conde de Buenavista Palace, which was built between 1798 and 1805 by order of the Marquise de Selva Nevada, María Josefa de Pinillos. It was a gift for her son for whom she had bought the title of Count of Buenavista.

It has stairs, an oval courtyard and main façade. Its planning is attributed to the Valencia Manuel Tolsá, then director of the area of sculpture at the Academy of San Carlos.

It hosted the Tabacalera Mexicana and later it was the National Lottery. It is now the San Carlos National Museum. Permanent and temporary exhibitions are held, especially European art from the sixteenth to the twentieth century. The permanent exhibition is divided into the Gothic, Neo-Classical, Renaissance, Romanticism, Mannerism, Impressionism, Baroque, Academy in Mexico, Rococo and Realism styles.
