Highly recommend this lovely smallish museum. Housed in a beautiful building, the collection is largely religious with some 1400-1700 artifacts. Several El Greco paintings as well. Reasonably priced at 4 euros each.

This building has expansive ground floor exhibits and vaulted ceilings. We did have to use stairs to visit some secondary displays but the good stuff was at ground level.
