I admit it – I only went to this museum because it is in “the book.” But…. I am really glad I did. The courtyard alone is worth a visit. It is so beautiful I could have spent the whole afternoon there. Pretty flowers and ferns – very well maintained. I especially liked the mosaic tile floor in the middle. It would be a great place for a wedding.
There are some really impressive pieces at this museum, and they had a huge theft 20 years ago; but there were entirely too many religious pieces. IMHO (I am considering starting a new list – the number of Mary and baby Jesus paintings I have seen in museums.)
Sadly, the theft included a Vermeer.
