Nice house of Moorish style in a quiet garden, where you can appreciate the treasures brought by Mr Labit after his travels in the 19th century.

This museum is rather fascinating, though I'd recommend you read an account of George Labit's life before you go. I'll say no more, but it'll make the visit that much more worthwhile.
