  • There are a lot of paintings, clothes, ornaments and other things of christian theme. Definitely give it a visit if you're into this kind of things. Multiple different schools are represented on different floors so you can feel the difference. Among the other things, Spanish school space is very hot. Literally. Not sure if paintings are feeling better in a climate similar to a home one :)
  • 1 ticket entry for 3 galleries. There are many stairs. Ask for an elevator. I was not able to visit history gallery. Got tired. Very small gift shop where you buy ticket. No cafe Lots of available toilets. This place is great!!! recommend!!!
