The Ralli Museums

The Harry Recanati Foundation Ralli Museums is a private non-profit institution whose main aim is to acquaint the public with the quality of contemporary Latin American art.

The first Ralli Museum was founded in Punta del Este (Uruguay) in 1988; the second museum in Santiago (Chile) in 1992; the third one (Ralli 1) in Caesarea (Israel) in 1993; the fourth museum in Marbella (Spain) in 2000; and the fifth museum (Ralli 2) in Caesarea in 2007.

The Ralli Museums house one of the most important collections of contemporary Latin American art in the world. No donations or subsidies from public or private entities are accepted, and entrance is free of charge.


the Ralli Museum in Caesarea, Israel, is housed inside a magnificent building of Spanish Colonial style.

The entrance is called "Memory of Spain", commemorating 120 Jewish communities in Spain, between the 8th century to the 14th century AD. From both sides of the Fountain of Columbus, you will pass between the statues of Maimonides, Judah Halevi, Spinoza and Ibn Gabirol. The great people from the golden age of medieval Spanish Jewry. And in the back, four marble statues of Christopher Columbus, Miguel de Cervantes, Nostradamus and Michel de Montaigne are positioned. These figures are of Spanish Jews who were forced to convert to Christianity.

Nice capture. This one reminds me of the inner palace complex at Alhambra in Granada.
