Beautifully set out with wonderful works of art. Mention that you are over 65 and it is free! El Greco's altarpieces were amazing.

We visited this museum to view the El Greco paintings. It was very much worth it. All of the art is nicely displayed, there is plenty of room to observe with other patrons, and the rooms are easy to navigate.

This building has expansive ground floor exhibits and vaulted ceilings. We did have to use stairs to visit some secondary displays but the good stuff was at ground level.
