The Foundation

The Foundation, is a sum of efforts

The Foundation has its roots in the Association of «Amigos del Monasterio» (Friends of Monastery), created in 1977 to promote the restoration of Santa María la Real Monastery in Aguilar de Campoo (Palencia) under the leadership of José Maria Pérez «Peridis.» On 24 June 1994, we were constituted as a private non-profit cultural foundation of indefinite duration and national scope. The project grows in 2014 with the merger of Santa María la Real Foundation and Foundation of Historical Heritage of Castilla and León. This integration resulted in creating a team of professionals who work day by day, establishing the future in innovation, setting people, heritage, and landscape. Those are the key aims of our activity and efforts.
