  • Nice museum with Miro and Vasarely works among others. Great to rest here from crowds. Actually apart from walk to Santa Barbara castle this is my greatest experience in Alicante.
  • Free to enter. Open till 8 pm. The temporary exhibit was quite interesting. The permanent collections were alright to pass the time but nothing unmissable!
