Although disappointed by the missing ceramic of the girl playing a musical instrument (which is on loan to Madrid) the sheer authenticity of this ancient moorish building was a joy. No admission cost.

The picture shows the monstry and garden with pool but you cant Access that área, Only a few artifacts ? So unless you have a particular interest in going here id give it a miss.
