Pilar Fatás Monforte holds a master of arts in cultural heritage management, bachelor of arts degrees in history of art and in sciences of antiquity (archaeology and prehistory) from the University of Zaragoza, and a bachelor of arts in social and cultural anthropology from National Distance Education University (UNED), Madrid.

Since 1999, she has been a member of the Spanish Museum Curators Body of the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport. At the National Museum and Research Center of Altamira, she is in charge of planning, management, and supervision of technical, economic, and administrative areas, coordinating directly the programs of the Department of Publics, including educational and communication activities and the temporary exhibitions program.

She has been a member of the Accessibility Project and a researcher in the Social Value Project within the Preventive Conservation Research Program and Regime of Access to the Cave of Altamira (2012–14).

She was also adviser to the drafting of the new headquarters of the National Museum of Ethnography of Spain in 2010.
