  • Museum, State-of-the-art, modern, interactive and very interesting. You can easily do without a guide, all information is presented in English. The collection of statues, mosaics and household items are one of the richest in the country. There is also the opportunity to relax, if you are tired of walking through the halls, drink coffee and stroll through the courtyard.
