Born in Villena, Antonio Navarro Santafé was a great sculptor who dominated the religious imagery, both in size and marble, and the portrait in bust, besides being considered one of the best animalistic sculptors in Spain. Some of his most famous works are “The Monument to the Bear and the Madroño”, in the Puerta del Sol in Madrid, or “The Monument to the Horse”, in Jerez de la Frontera, as well as the bullfighting groups that can be contemplated in their Museum.

Navarro Santafé was also the author of the Monument to Ruperto Chapí, which is in front of the Chapí Theater, in Villena; and the current image of the Virgin of the Virtues, patron saint of Villena, after the primitive carving during the Civil War was destroyed.

The Museum was conceived by the artist himself on the ground floor of the house that had been his studio. In him it is possible to know his legacy through many of his works of smaller size, besides sketches of the author of his most important creations.
