While strolling around Avila, I passed by this palace cum museum but didn't visit it. The gates were locked and there wasn’t anyone around. I presumed it was closed when I was there around 1:30pm and moved on.

The Palace was a real surprise. Low key. No tour groups or selfie sticks here! I loved the artwork. It's from the 1940"s and 1950's. The Palace is quite small and there is an audioguide The photos of the building restoration are interesting.
