The building is not distinguished architecturally, but there is a magnificent formal garden in front of the museum. The permanent collection is worth seeing and they also have temporary exhibits. There are only a few Goya paintings in the museum; the portraits (including a self-portrait)...More

We were nicely surprised by the multitude and beauty of the exhibited works ranging from clerical pieces (with a medieval clergyman wearing spectacles) to late (Guernica) etches by Picasso. Nice view from the museum windows over the episcopal park. Worth the detour!

Although a relatively small permanent exhibition the Musee Goya was well worth a visit (and just €5 entry including the temporary exhibition can't be bad). Well set out displays and the visiting exhibit was very good.

This museum displays some very interesting spanish paintings. We especially liked the painting "Les mangeurs de moules" by Pedro Nunez de Villavincencio. The temporary exhibit was interesting too.
