Attraction details
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Among atractiones, youcanfind the amazing museum of miniatures.
there is a small building, contains 4 rooms . the visit takes about 40 minutes.
it's very difficult to describe the world that i saw thru the microscopes. it was the Firsttime in my lifethat i have seen such thinks. "lLa segrada familia"bullfights.camels and trains,painted on pin heads. Afteryouget into that experiance, you definatly ask yourself how long time it took the artistto paint so small.
before or after that visit you can see the "mikve" and the sinagog in the jewish quarter of besalu.

Situated in a small town, the museum itself is small, so we weren't expecting to be there for long,nor to find it particularly interesting. How wrong can you be! Initially, all we saw were models of shop interiors, similar to dolls houses, cleverly done but nothing special. On venturing further however, the next room contains tiny models, carved in nutshells, or paintings on a pin head! These you have to look thru with magnifying glasses or microscopes. I certainly haven't seen anything like it before, and it beggars belief how anyone can even pain that small! Definately worth a visit. Also whilst there a visit to the Church opposite is worthwhile if it is open, very plain inside, but somehow beautiful.
