  • This small museum exceptional esverdaderamente. The 19th century building was constructed for its role in Museum and library, in the time in which the rich were illustrated. Its exterior is an eclectic harmony, right next to the train and bus station. Inside is a small museum in minimalist version "English cut": works of El Greco, Goya, Rubens, Sorolla and works loaned by El Padró with Bourbon and Hapsburg, an Egyptian Mummy, Philippine art and other distant pa´ses, 20th century works and works of local authors , and the spectacular library. A minimalist gem.

  • The temporary exhibition of Cabanyes recalls the navies of Sorolla. The permanent collection is amazing by companies as important that it meets. The library, a delight, but needs to be cleaned of mites or very valuable books of historical importance will be destroyed.
