“Unusual and interesting”
Review of Museo Nestor

This museum is dedicated to a Canarian painter, with definite tastes and views of his own. Many of the paintings are quite unusual and in their way thought-provoking. Certainly worth a visit, as is the adjacent Pueblo Canario.

We really enjoyed visiting the museum. The art collection was interesting . The museum is small but quite homely. It felt like a taste of Spain. Only 50 cents entrance fee. Well worth a visit. Then onto the bar in the courtyard for a drink.near the hotel Santa Catalina with its stylish art decor entrance hall and beautiful gardens. Near the yachting marina and the tranquil Parc Dolamus with its fountains, cacti andd koi carp

My wife and I departed on a cruse from the hotel across the street from this museum. After we saw everything else on the island we happen to catch this open. It's the home of a not-so-famous painter (every person in the paintings look like him, men and women alike) but the furnishings and restored home is worth the admission. I found it quiet and stress free, worth the very low fee.

I was a little disappointed. I was expecting something else, something worth seeing... we read it had some articles about the history of the region.... not impressive, though...

The Nestor Museum is situated in the Pueblo Canario next to the superb Santa Catalina Hotel. Try visiting on a Sunday morning to take in the Folk Dancing display as well as a tour of the Nestor Museum. Entrance is a nominal €0.50 but the Museum features the works of top Canarian artist Nestor de la Torre. The museum is cool and not too much hard work. One hour should be more than sufficient for a detailed inspection of the works on display. Afterwards a quick stroll for a coffee on the Terrace/ Bar Carabella at Hotel Santa Catalina should round off a pleasant morning.
