The Círculo de Bellas Artes is one of the most important private cultural centres in Europe and is characterised by its open attitude towards outstanding innovative artistic trends. During the early years of the 20th century, its directors included important cultural figures of the period such as Jacinto Benavente and Carlos Arniches. The young Pablo Picasso attended painting classes here and Ramón María del Valle-Inclán frequented its rooms.
