  • This museum has decorated its interior in the style of a Spanish Renaissance palace. It exposes valuable carvings, paintings, furniture, ceramics and other objects from the 14TH to the 20TH centuries. This ancient property belonged to the writer Enrique Larreta. Excels at building a beautiful garden Moorish, Andalusian, as we were told "only in the country".

  • The House is set with criterion historicist, as if it were a Renaissance palace. At the Museum runs also the library "Alfonso the wise", specialized in Spanish literature. One of the main attractions of the Museum is its lush Andalusian garden, which in itself is worth a visit.

  • I recommend everyone go at least to the gardens. It is very relaxing to sit in banks under the shadows of the trees to watch or photograph perfectly manicured plants. The garden is free but you pay for the entrance to the Museum.

  • The Museum's collection is surprising. Stands out the portrait of Enrique Larreta made by Ignacio Zuloaga. Is an of the paintings notable that there are in the city. But the presentation of the exhibition does not have deserved quality. There are little illuminated objects to appreciate them at their real value. For example the above picture, which is set at an improper altitude and reflects the light, so it is difficult to see. The garden is a great place. It is well-kept and has variety of plants, flowers and trees very cute. It also has very good sculptures. Continuously there are activities for the public, and they are for all tastes and ages. Realized in the Museum, its garden and a small theatre that is part of the facilities. Tariffs are very accessible.
