“A unique museum in the world where the medieval and the mechanical merge inmerse in the history of a region and the evolution of the automobile through the centuries”
Starting with the private collection, Miguel de la Vía combined the reconstruction of the Tower with a rigorous search for new models of the Rolls-Royce firm with the aim of obtaining at least one unit of all the vehicles manufactured by the firm under British ownership. Today it is the most complete Rolls-Royce collection in Europe displaying a wide variety of styles as the firm delivered the chassis, engine, radiator and hood, leaving the finish in the hands of master bodybuilders chosen by the buyer. And it is one of the few places in the world where all Phantom series models manufactured until 1972 can be seen together.
The exhibit through its six pavilions allows us to enjoy authentic automotive jewels and offers a dynamic and suggestive vision of the evolution in the design of these cars, from the oldest model, the Silver Ghost of 1910, up to a Silver Spur from the nineties. The 45 units that make up the Rolls-Royce legacy are complemented by some thirty prestigious European and American vehicles that review technological advances and the impact that cars have had on society, culture and the economy over more than a hundred years.
Open to the public since 2000, Torre Loizaga is a must-see for every motoring enthusiast and has earned an international reputation with its nomination for “Best Museum of the Year” by Octane magazine. An ideal meeting place for clubs such as the Rolls-Royce Enthusiast’s Club, for participants in Via Flaminia Rally or for visitors to the High Motors Show, an event on his own held for four consecutive years alongside the Autobello elegance contest
