  • Pretty blow of heart for this little Museum in the heart of Castres. For lovers of art, it is not just a museum rich in work of the painter, but you will also find pieces of El Greco and other masters of the period. There's a few temporary exhibit very nice we saw that of Picasso. A nice surprise...

  • Pretty building. I visited on a day celebrating culture all over France. Hence entry was free. They had a few exhibits going. Nice space.  more »
  • Few paintings of Goya but a lot of Spanish painters... too many paintings on the Catholic religion.
