Museum
“A really interesting, original museum where the building and its works of art are in total harmony. The building and gardens were designed first then artists were invited to design art pieces to fill the space - Joan Miró, Alexander Calder, Fernand Leger, Georges Braque, Alberto Giacometti, Marc Chagall and Eduardo Chillida to name but a few.”
