In the middle of the city and very nice gallery with paintings and art spanning many centuries. From Ancient Egyptian to the most contemporary. Set out on three floors it can be explored relatively rapidly or more slowly depending on the amount of time one has. An audio tour is also available. The pretty courtyard at the entrance is a nice place to relax.
Very interesting collections in an beautiful and charming 17th century abbey. Beautiful court and the chapel with older elements was converted into a sculpture exhibition hall. Very impressive.
