Lovely stop in the Senda promenade. I didn't go in because of lack of time, but I am definitely glad I at least saw it from the outside. Such an impressive building surrounded with lots of greenery.

It was an education for us in Basque painters. The building was a fabulous old house being repurposed. it was a treat to admire the moldings and ceilings, plus a lovely walk by a park to get there in a posh neighborhood of similar houses.

The remarkable pieces are mostly impressionist. The building itself is quite beautiful as it is an old palace converted into a museum. Prices of entry is 3 euros (lonely planet needs updating)
