Large collection of art over the centuries with many sculptures of 19th century. A great find in a beautiful mansion.

Delightful place. Gorgeous building and a wonderful assortment of beautiful things inside. Sit in the garden to chill for a while. And it's all free!
Free when we visited. Pretty cool little museum with statues and paintings. A lot of religious type people falling on each other or looking at the sky art, but there's a couple of remarkable pieces and there are much worse ways to spend an hour or two on a hot day. Cool building, too
