Near the garden, the majestic Bishop's Palace houses the recently renovated Goya Museum. It invites you to discover, or rediscover, the hispanic art through works by Goya, Velasquez or Murillo.

This first Hispanic Art Museum in France, after the Louvre, provides a unique vision of the works of great spanish masters from the 14th century to present day.
