Distributed over three floors, the MAS (Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Santander and Cantabria) is a building in neo-Herrerian style which houses a valuable collection of works of art, among which the Flemish, Italian and Spanish paintings from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries and, especially, a portrait of King Ferdinand VII by Goya stand out. This art centre also has as well as a good collection of contemporary art with works by Fortuny, Rosales, Iturrino, Solana and Pancho Cossío, among other artists. The permanent collection, comprising about 250 works, is shown on the upper floors. The rest of the space is devoted to temporary exhibitions. Among the contemporary artists represented in the MAS we find Alfredo Jaar, Celso Lagar, Bernard Plossu, Javier Arce, Jaume Plesa, Eulàlia Valldosera or Eduardo Gruber, among many others.
