Unlike museums that have paintings hung on bare walls, this entire venue is a work of art, with immaculate detailing, ornate Rococo touches and a beautiful gated terrace. Originally the house of the Ortiz de Taranco brothers, the state acquired this landmark in 1943, along with the donated family collection of art. The body of tapestries, paintings, sculptures, furniture and ornaments make up a truly opulent palace. Oldest authors are exhibited on the top floor, while the ground floor exhibits works done primarily by Spanish artists. No photos are allowed, though this seems outweighed by the sparsity of museum attendants present to enforce such a rule.
