Diego Aragona Pignatelli Cortes Museum
Not only its art collections are worth visiting. Its gardens, fountains, walks etc. will have you spending quite a while too.
Palm trees and columns.
When you arrive at this place, you'll see the huge gardens with palm trees in front of the building. At the end of the garden, the group of white columns inspired by Greek and Roman architecture indicate that this is the beginning of the gallery. This museum opened its doors thanks to princess Rosina Pignatelli who donated her art collection to the city of Naples in 1952. Her huge and exclusive collection consisted of paintings, sculptures, and all kinds of artworks of many different artistic trends. Here you have from the Italian Renaissance, to nineteenth-century movements waiting for you behind these walls. However, we recommend that this visit is split into two. First of all, visit all floors inside the museum, and when you have finished, we recommend that you spend a good while on going round the building's exterior in order to see its gardens and fountains because this place is spectacular, and this is the best way to take in what you have just seen.
