    Goya Museum but only 3 canvases from the master, more unrepresentative of his work... Very beautiful altarpieces to see and the helmet ivory King of England, a superb piece! Museum which presents of Spanish painting, a collection of firearms and a temporary exhibition of engravings (August 2017)... Mouai, to do if it rains! And in more full of markets... so with a stroller that's not cool! Better to make the Church in front, which is great and free!

    The Museum is dedicated to Goya but it shows that three paintings... One wonders why it was called so if not to deceive the tourist... It would be better to call it Museum of Spanish painting because there isn't nearly that much to see... BUT the Museum is interesting and for true lovers of art, it is probably the in-depth tour... There are other issues that have nothing to do with the painting and Goya, but which may be of interest for numismatists or gun collectors or fan of the war 39-45...
