This is my favorite museum of art, anywhere. The setting is absolutely magic, the staff are marvellous, and the paintings of Fernando Zobel! His paintings are like dreams. You fall into them and never want to leave. Well worth a visit!

It was our first experience of an abstract art museum and it was great. The entry was free. The museum is a hanging house based on the edge of the hills. It was beautiful and we would recommend visiting this place.

Not only is the art fantastic, but the Hanging house is worth visiting, and the view is great. Take the time to see this museum.
