  • This tiny Museum (3 pieces) is full of dust, poorly maintained, and without any explanation. If you are able to find the monk to open the Museum, after an unpleasant welcome you will see some beautiful objects in bronze, but once again without any explanation. There is a paper on sale but no one to sell it... Fortunately the price of entry is at the discretion of the visitor. If you go to the baby mountain for the view you can stop you otherwise don't make the trip just for that
