I really liked the fact that there were works from the contemporary artist of the area. This is not something you see in small museums in small towns so yes, it's good for a short visit. It's free anyway

This museum is housed in the former Hospital of Charity and has an excellent collection of Spanish paintings from the 15th to the 19th centuries. Worth seeking out.

Much religious art, as you would expect, but also some landscapes and some portraits, so something for everyone.

This was quite difficult to find with poor signage on the way and the museum itself was quite incognito! Paintings were well displayed in chronological order. Good size and number of exhibits.

Enjoyed some of the art pieces and the museum provided a breath of cool air from the midday sun. Was free entry, so can't complain re: the pricing, although would be less inclined to enter if it was more than a couple euros.
