Extremaduran and Latin American Museum of Contemporary Art of Badajoz
Extremaduran and Latin American Museum of Contemporary Art, known more as MEIAC opened in 1995. It has a collection Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American artists.
The Spanish, Portuguese and Iberoamericana sections are located in the basement. The first and second floors are devoted to Extremaduran art. The third floor is dedicated to John Barjola (Extremaduran painter) and the fourth floor is dedicated to Wolf Vostell, a German artist closely linked to Extremadura.
The MEIAC is located on the lot once occupied by the Fort Pardaleras, which was demolished to make way for the Provincia Prison of Badajoz in the 50s.
When the prison was abandoned in the 70's to created a new jail away from the city, it was decided to accommodate there the MEIAC, creating new facilities but conserving the central circular building of the prison.
