This museum is tucked down a street in the old town and contains religious paintings that are centuries old. It was a privilege to see the many artists work. There are other objects too, like manuscripts and coins. Well worth a visit.

Would have been interesting if they had been open when they said it would!! Luckily there are some really good places to have a drink and snack nearby!
