This museum houses a beautiful collection of ecclesiastical art from the 12th-18th centuries. There are quite a few wood and stone carvings but the painted altarpieces are truly spectacular. Worth a visit even if you only have an hour to spare.
Amazing art and sculpture even if you are, like me, not religious. I was lucky enough (in February) to have the place to myself and saw some of the most lovely 'stuff'. Give that most of this art was produced hundreds of years ago and...More
