#3 of 13 in Things to do in Castres
Named for the master Spanish painter, Musee Goya has the largest collection of Spanish paintings in France. Located in the old Bishop's Palace built in 1675, this is the only museum of Spanish paintings dating as far back as the 14th century in the country. See works by Zurbarán, Velázquez, and, of course, Goya. Explore the rare, historical collections of weapons from the 15th to the 20th centuries, coins from as far back as the 12th century, and French sculpture. Admire the 50 pieces of Spanish sculpture from the 15th to the 20th centuries, as well as drawings and etchings, including nearly 600 works from old masters and Goya's four engraved series.

  • This is a lovely museum with lots of fabulous art work to view and admire takes 2-3 hours to see everything and fully appreciate the art; although could be done more quickly  more »

  • It is a very interesting, small enough Museum located in a historic area. I average as mets notes because I find it scandalous that the Museum is paying visitors-workers during the heritage days during which the visits are supposed to be free in the France. I moved a lot and haven't seen it here. It is therefore an interesting Museum, but that reinforces and perpetuates the cultural discrimination to the disadvantage of the less wealthy of us.
