Tierra de Campos (‘Land of Fields’) is a region that stands out as the birthplace of the artistic and cultural revolution the Renaissance constituted in the Iberian Peninsula. In four of its towns -Becerril de Campos, Paredes de Nava, Cisneros and Fuentes de Nava- you can find one of the highest concentrations of Renaissance art in Spain. It was also in these towns where some of the most iconic historical figures of that time, key to understand that historical period in Spain, were born and raised, lived and worked in their workshops. Campos del Renacimiento gives you, then, an exceptional opportunity to visit some unique art works in the very place where they were once imagined, while walking the same areas and buildings where Pedro and Alonso Berruguete, Jorge Manrique, Alejo de Vahía or Francisco Giralte coexisted. And all within these four towns.
The Territorial Museum is here located in St. Mary’s Church, declared an Asset of Cultural Interest in 1977. Being dedicated to Mary, the Mother of Jesus, Campos del Renacimiento opens here its chapter entitled “Land of Mary”.
The second site of Campos del Renacimiento is dedicated to St. Eulalia. This second chapter is called “the Christ and his Church”. There, we can see one of the greatest treasures in our museum: The Kings of Judah, panel paintings by Pedro Berruguete.
Our museum has two sites within this town. Our first stop will be in St. Peter’s Church, where we will find delight in several works under a common title: “Our Church”. Our next stop will be in St. Facundus & St. Primitivus’ Church, a place where a huge surprise awaits.
By the end of our tour, we arrive to St. Mary’s Church in Fuentes de Nava, a sixteenth century building that houses a myriad of art works. Among others, the Mudejar coffered ceiling stands out due to its flawless manufacture and extraordinary state of preservation.
