I visited this house with my wife. The rooms and furniture are beautifully set out and the guides are very helpful. You can also sit in the garden and look at the tile museum. Well worth 3 euros.

If you like the art of tiles, especially old ones with pictures of horses or Shakespeare characters this is worth finding and a walk around. The house is a delight so do that as well.

This is an interesting museum with different exhibitions: ceramic tiles, furniture and other household and artistic items on display. They also have a small but nice garden inside. You can spend 2 hours here if you visit the museum.

My wife and I visited today at 10.30 am and can honestly say that we have never experienced such bad manners and surly behaviour shown from the staff. Such was their behaviour we left after paying and only viewed a small number of the exhibits....More

A little boutique andalusian style residence, rich in collected art objects (Azuelos, furniture, mugs), and a lovely patio.
