The International Footwear Museum is housed in a beautiful old convent structure. Shoes from all time periods and cultures are exhibited. The tools and machines used by cobblers over the years are also shown. It is interesting to see how styles and materials have evolved.

Enjoyed our hour's visit to this museum. The history of shoes displayed was very interesting. The videos which show how shoes are/were made, is worth the entrance fee. The old Convent is also very interesting to wander through.
