Museo Salvador Ferrando

Tlacotalpan

If you are an art lover, in Plaza Hidalgo (a garden near the town hall) next to the temple of Virgen de la Candelaria, there is another point of interest: the Salvador Ferrando Museum. This landscape painter from these lands, made several studies Italy where he won a gold medal that recognized the quality of his art, and then as the son prodigy would return to make portraits of his fellow countrymen and be the first teachers of the high school of Tlacotalpan.

Founded in 1965, the site adapted its rooms to what used to be the artist's house, keeping its typical 19th century style, so it preserves its architectural structure almost intact, which is why it was recognized as a World Heritage Site.

In spite of being small and modest, the visit will help you to understand the importance of this artist specialized in portraits, who captured in a recurrent way in his canvas landscapes and the inhabitants of Tlacotalpan, their idiosyncrasy, uses and customs.

In addition to Ferrando's canvases, some traditional furniture and old pieces that reflect how daily life was in the early days of the town and the Papaloapan basin are also exhibited.

In another room you will find personal objects, tools and most of the work of the Veracruz painter and others; as well as other regional artists.
