The Casa de Velázquez

Casa de Velázquez

The Casa de Velázquez is a French public institution devoted to creative activities and research on the arts, languages and literature of the Iberian countries, Latin America and North Africa. This institution also welcomes artists, researchers, teachers and participates in artistic and academic exchanges between France and the aforementioned regions. Being at the same time a centre for research and artistic projects gives to the Casa de Velázquez a unique status among the five Écoles françaises à l'étranger. Since it was founded in 1928 by the Ministry of Higher Education and Research, this School has welcomed both artists -in a manner similar to La Villa Médicis in Rome - and researchers from the School for Higher Hispanic and Iberian Studies (EHEHI).
