The Ibáñez Museum of Melilla
An unusual permanent collection: Spanish art going back generations but with special attention to contemporary local artists you won't see anywhere else.
Art in the House of the Clock.
The Torre de la Vela (Tower of the Sail, more popularly known as the Casa del Reloj, House of the Clock) houses a gallery named after Andrés García Ibáñez, a young Almería artist who donated a good portion of his work to the city. But the permanent collection here ranges much farther afield, covering painting, sculpture, drawing, engraving, and photography from some of the masters of Spanish art such as Goya (represented by an important collection of engravings) and Modernists such as Ricardo Baroja, Picasso, and Dalí. There are six halls, including one dedicated to the avant garde, another to realism, and one especially set aside for contemporary Melilla painters. The museum is closed Monday.
