    Beautiful building, illustrative. Several very different museums, some with guide, all free, with a bar of the most colorful and on time, to take even a cup of coffee and let it be. The same bar is outside in the square in front, more active and modern.

    An excellent choice for those who love museums. There are four museums gathered in one place. Special attention should be given to the Numismatic Museum, one of the largest collections in the world of ancient coins and rare.
