Really beautiful art deco Villa.
Amazing architecture and even more beautiful park. Visit on a sunny day and stroll through the green. There are huge trees and a calm little lake. The museum's restaurant is great as well. Good buffet with veggie options and fruit salad dessert. We spent a perfect afternoon here.
what a great discovery. we were luck enough to stumble on this during a Joana Vasconcelos exhibit. the museum is a fairly standard modernist setting but it's a good spot for contemporary art. wander around the garden and end up at the Richard Serra...shades of Kubrick monolith in a turn of the century European stately home.
