Without repeating what other reviewers have said, in greater detail, this is a beautiful and inspiring museum, which is well worth a visit. We toured it twice, simply because it wasn't until we were inside the palace that we noticed the lack of information about each room or particular exhibits. This is most unusual, in Spain. Having gone back to... More

... the rest is not really. The collection of sculptures in the yard is really beautiful, but the collections inside are a bit special. A lot of Dali, wich is good if you like it, along with a bunch of puppets and scenes of I believe Italian cribs/nativity scenes. The building is interesting.

The highlight of the museum is the group of 20th century sculptures on the beautiful terrace. On a sunny morning with few visitors this is a place to relax and enjoy. The rest of the museum is pleasant - the Neapolitan nativity scenes are fascinating as are some of the other exhibits - we liked the medieval maps.

Entrance fee 4,50 euro that gives access to two floors of the palace. The patio features modern sculptures of several artists like Moore and Rodin, but the most impressive part is the Christmas crib exhibition. In particular, the collection of a Neapolitan nativity scene from the 18th century, which includes about 1000 figures in total. In addition there is a... More

Lovely house, brilliant sculptures, particularly liked what I would term the "Colonial Room" - need to see it to understand.

This is a very luxurius apartment with view of the sea and the cathedral. On the patio there are sculptures displayed, inside antique furniture and splendid antique rooms. Don't miss the trompe l'oeiul with the circus acts

This is a place you should visit to see a Dali collection and a most wonderful toy representation of X-mas. You can also see some living space of a wealthy family of the mid-XX century.

Some nice sculptures in the courtyard, staged rooms from when it was a private residence, although nothing that I could see to describe its history. A couple of rooms of lavishly detailed nativity scenes and Dali prints.
