The large building is only 2 stories high, which is a shame because it´s surrounded by taller ugly buildings that undermine its beauty. Someone should wreck the horrible construction behind the main facade!! That same facade has some kind of canvas covering the central part,...More

Very much enjoyed this Palace Museum, part of a large complex. Photos restricted, unfortunately, to phone cameras and iPads so worth having one or other with you. Great use made of the broken mirrors, translated into mosaic, mirrored surfaces throughout.
