  • What a good surprise to discover in the small town of castrate an also interesting Museum; in a beautiful old building (former bishopric, with garden designed by Mansart), a rich collection of Spanish painting, beautiful Goya but also Velázquez, Murillo, and even a Picasso; not to be missed during a trip to Castres.

  • In the Museum there are three Goya Goya's work (one away). Still a little Renaissance works, a bit of Mannerism, a bit of Spanish modernism, some coins and small arms. The complex was designed by the architect of Versailles bishopric Hardouin-Mansart. Due to a temporary Exposition tickets cost 5 Euro. Lunch-12 till 2:00 pm. Fans of Goya not so fast here.
