    ik bezocht op deze historisch unieke site de tentoonstelling over Spaanse barokmeesters. De expo is beperkt van omvang en bevat hoofdzakelijk werken uit het Luxemburgse Musée d'histoire et d'art. Omgeven door eigentijdse muziek (een belevenis op zich) kuier je langs de geselecteerde werken waarbij het gepolychromeerde beeldhouwwerk prachtig tot zijn recht komt. Esthetisch springen de enkele doeken van Murillo en Zubaran in het oog. Zij zijn de kers op de taart. Warm aanbevolen!
