  • It is not unlike major museums that I was lucky enough to visit, however respect of religious objects is the most important. Great masters of art permanently imprinted on their walls your work, so if the building is also a gem. It has objects from around the world, one fails to see it all. At the end of the Tour Grand spiral staircase, another architectural wonder. Down with care, especially at the end when the steps are made less raised.
