Excellent collection of icons and other religious art. All well signed and lit. A manageable collection for a mornings break from the heat. Well worth a visit if you like icons.

Our local friend recommended a visit to the Foundation's museum and gallery. With a modest interest in art we spent a pleasant couple of hours going through the religously themed art gallery and then focussing on the Byzantine icons. The latter were a gem. Although...More
