What a charming museum this is! A short, English or Spanish tour takes you through the items in the collection. It is intimate and interesting so our children aged 10, 9 and 6 could easily relate to the items on display and not get bored.

In what was his bedroom you can also see the basket, cane & crucifix that were his. Now this house is the home to many thousands of artifacts that have been donated or collected in... More

We went this morning and do not regret it! It was cool-but I had no expectations of anything going in. I just thought, "Museum! Lets go!"

It is located in the lower Albaicin area of Granada just above the Plaza de Santa Ana. The Pisa family supported many charitible works, including those of a local priest in the 1500s (... More
