  • Just amazing! A must see when you like Art Nouveau.
  • They close the door at half hour before closing time. So the real hours of operation is 3 hours a day2-5pm. Could learn some customer service skills from Barcelona Gaudi houses. The staff is fear and control driven, unlike the idea and experience the architecture holds which is light, curves, connections of the human experience.
