The renowned Puerta de Morón, in Marchena, comprises one double gate with a patio and an Almohad tower from the first half of the 13th century. It is currently the headquarters of the Municipal Tourist Office and, in the covered patio and on the upper floor, the Lorenzo Coullaut-Valera Museum, named after a renowned sculptor from Marchena at the end of the 19th, beginning of the 20th century.

He produced a great number of works, some of which can be admired in parks and gardens in Spain, Italy and Latin America, like the Monument to Bécquer in the Gardens of the Parque de Maria Luisa (Seville) or the monument dedicated to Cervantes, Don Quixote and Sancho Panza in the Plaza de España (Madrid). Another striking work of his is the Mausoleum of the Marquises of Linares (the Crypt of the Hospital de Los Marqueses in Linares)

The museum has a permanent collection nearly thirty works by Lorenzo Coullaut-Valera including sculptures, reliefs and sketches. These feature the sculpture of Cervantes, the realism of the bronze sketch of Isabel La Católica and the sculptured group of Las Tres Marcheneras.

Tuesday to Friday, 11am to 1.30pm. Saturday and Sunday, 11am to 2pm.
