We had the good fortune to be visiting on a day when there was an "open doors" scheme, so got in for free. I might have felt it was a bit small and limited for the entrance charge, but certainly it was an intriguing museum. A number of eclectic paintings from a private collection and several beautiful sculptures - one... More

We went on a guided tour of the museum and it was well worth it. The style is eclectic and the history behind it all is interesting. There are cool courtyards, cloisters, richly decorated rooms and stunning views.
