This was a visit of two halves. On entering this magnificent building, by chance we chose to go downstairs first. This was the most awful, badly laid out, damp smelling exhibition of classical art & archaeology, pottery, bronze & glass in cabinets that were poorly lighted and often full of nothing. Disappointed we went upstairs and were treated to two floors of what had been the actual home of Taranco Oritz and housed some magnificent furniture and paintings. The money to build and furnish this magnificent house in a Parisian style must have been millions. Seems that of the three brothers only one was married and bore 9 children. They got the top floor - a fabulous area also showing a separate art show. There wasn't an official tour but the lady on the ground floor was happy to give us a free personal overview in very acceptable Spanglish.
