Not a big museum in an old chapel. Numerous small old religious artifacts. Good for a short visit. The old Pieta is good but very battered. Some very nice tiles with clear Islamic influences. These were the best part for me.

This is a small museum within a redundant church. The church is beautiful and the small collection of local sacred artifacts very interesting but maybe only of limited interest. It was only two euro and a guide leaflet in English. It was the quiet peaceful...More
