Fodor's Review

The 18th-century palace that houses this museum is almost worth the visit alone, with three floors overlooking a central stone patio and a lovely alabaster fountain. The well-curated collection is heavy in religious oil paintings and includes works by Melchor Pérez Holguín, considered to be the master of Andean colonial art. There are also some excellent contemporary works by artists such as Marina Núñez del Prado, a leading figure in Latin American sculpture.
