This is a lovely museum where you get to roam the grounds and see the sculpture. Plus, it's right by El Cid, so lovely homes all around the area if you're done with the gardens but want to keep walking around.

What a beautiful experience. Enjoy the beauty and splendor of the gardens and sculptures. Take your time and take it all in. This is something that adults will enjoy more than children.
