I was brought here for the temporary collection, but on top of that we found a beautiful villa and garden. Definitely worth a visit on a weekend.

This is an extraordinary minimalist art collection in a beautiful villa. The Meg Webster Cone of Water is breathing. As is the corridor of Dan Flavin installations and the James Turrell Ganzfeld. Gardens with sculpture are beautiful.
