A beautiful museum collecting some incredible and most beautiful paintings, sculptures in the 19th century...the building dates back to Napoleon's uncle Cardinal Fesch..

Obviously many religious paintings, but also some good and strange works, well worth a visit. Opening times a bit odd.

Mostly unknown, secondary artists but there is one Bellini, one Botticelli, two Titians, and a few other famous ones on second floor. The basement has an interesting collection of Corsican art. Entrance fee for adults is 8 Euros and for seniors it is 5 Euros.
