  • We decided to come and have a look for two reasons, basically:-why-because it is inside a particular building. Important notice: do not go crazy for the art of "religious" type. One of the most important notes picture galleries of Spain, organized, and you visit easily but ... Madonnas, Christs and altarpieces like there's no tomorrow ... In the map that you are given at the entrance are reported the important paintings for each room, pity that the rooms do not have numbers and you should recognize from the colors ... or at least I have not seen numbers anywhere ... Beautiful our Lady of Pinturicchio. Some paintings by Goya, El Greco, Velazquez, but nothing (apart from Pinturicchio) that got me really excited. But it is a speech of personal sensitivity. It is still a nice Museum and free. Clear that if you have limited time and you're not particularly fond of this kind of art can do more. There was a nice temporary exhibition on the figure of the Virgin Mary. If the review was HELPFUL, click on THANKS Ipack!
