The description of this place it says "It's like no other villa in the world" and that is so so true. It's hard to put into words as you look from display to display reminded of those plaster figure heads you saw at seaside fairs in the 70s. It is so weird it actually becomes good and some of the descriptions in the 10 courts of hell left you stunned in a weird sort of way. For example the crimes of Ungratefulness, disrespect to elders & escaping from prison all carried the same penalty of having Heart cut out which seems a little harsh. On the plus side however, the next time I want a seat on the bus I will have a little secret smile if the 'youngsters' don't leap to their feet in a respectful sort of way as I know what is coming to them. I think this place will forever stand as a monument why hallucinogenic substances and architectural design should never be mixed!
