  • Ulpiano Czech Museum is a must-see for those who make tourism on the outskirts of Madrid, especially for those who come to spend a day or weekend to Chinchón (to 6 Km). The collection that is exposed, painting and sculpture, is unique to Ulpiano Czech, born in the village at the end of the 19th century. To my all pictures with motifs from Roman times and the majestic liked particularly the painting of large "Escape from Pompeii". Visit 100% recommended.

  • Ulpiano Czech Museum honors Colmenar de Oreja, hometown of a universal painter and lets us know more than 200 of his works. The facilities are a luxury in the community of Madrid. It is worth to check it out. Czech Ulpiano (1860-1916) was one of the most sought-after painters of late nineteenth century, although in Spain is little known by the general public. Formed in Rome and in Paris they impress their horses, their representations of the Roman world, its scenes of war, their Indian... They charge so much life in the brushes from this artist that not strange that their pictures have been copied in Hollywood movies that recreate the classic novels of the Roman world. The Museum, just, justifies the trip, but should not despise the yet little tourist town, with one plaza Mayor preserved in impeccable form, his Church of Santa Maria Maior (order of Santiago) very well restored and a welcoming neighborhood.

  • All a surprise to discover this Madrid at the end of the 19th century artist. Been fascinated by horses in motion that appear to come to life in his paintings and sculptures. No wonder that Hollywood film set in his work to reproduce their works in the scenographies of Ben-Hur. Visit essential. For all audiences

  • One of the jewels hidden in Madrid. It is worth a visit to Colmenar only to see the impressive works of the painter and sculptor Ulpiano Czech, native of Colmenar in people. Tables gigantic and full of life leave you speechless and leaves you wanting more.
