Francisco Peralta Puppet Collection

Francisco Peralta Puppet Collection

It is a curious museum located in the Romanesque Puerta de Santiago where the city was accessed from Arévalo and Medina del Campo. It houses a charming collection of 38 puppets donated by the famous puppeteer of Cádiz, Francisco Peralta. The body of the dolls is made of wood, bandages, plaster and rabbit tail; recycled household materials, cloth and metal elements are added. The wife of the teacher, Matilde del Amo, was responsible for the costumes and textile accessories of the scenes.
