  • Museum is probably the best way to sample local Spanish art and it is free. If you are not into art it is probably not worth it since 2/3 are religious art, retablos, etc. They don't have many...

  • This place was okay as all of the artwork had a religious tone to it. Not that it is bad, but just an FYI for others. I would have given it four stars but I had to put my bag in one of those little cubicles which required 1 euro and the staff didn't have change for me from 2 euro which I think is a bit unacceptable.
  • Lovely religious art on the first floor, we will return to see more later this week. People were helpful, English guides provided. (Btw, the lockers for belongings ask for 1 euro, we just had a 2 euro coin, but it was returned when we came back for our things. I saw someone with an earlier post about needing change. Not needed)
