This is a good museum to visit if you wish to see a variety of art that you could see at local churches and museums. Ability to read Spanish is helpful. Does not take long to visit.

This is a nice combination of an old church and a modern artist. You will see his works as well as religious and cultural paintings from 19 and 20 century. The 'chapel' has a good, big mural, seats, quiet. There is even free banos! But...More
