This is a beautiful building built at the beginning of 1900. The Municipality runs an art school in it and I am not very sure that there are guided tours in it, or if a visitor may go inside just to see. They have a...More

It's a nice place to visit and see, the issue it's the surroundings which are not very traveler friendly
