This is a very well organized museum. There is a lot of information and a very enthusiastic curator. I learned a lot about the surrounding area through their masks

This is an extensive mask museum in a lovely B&B in the centro. The owner is extremely knowledgeable about his collection, which is vast. Also other folkloric arts on display, well worth a visit.
