RUIZ DE LUNA MUSEUM

The Ruiz de Luna Museum in Talavera de la Reina occupies a former Augustinian convent from the 17th century. The purpose of the museum space is to house the personal collection of ceramist Juan Ruiz de Luna, which is composed of valuable pieces of Talavera pottery from the 16th to the 20th centuries, including personal works by the artist.

The collection as it is currently conserved serves as a reminder of both the splendor experienced by the city during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries thanks to its ceramic production and the enormous work of Ruiz de Luna. The latter was developed from the late nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century and his goal was to recover, along with other potters of the city, the fame for Talavera pottery, inspired by the models that gave prestige in past centuries.
