Why locals love it

Most locals don’t even know about this extraordinary place. It’s a weird museum where the white curves of classical statues contrast with the black metal of old machinery, making for a truly surreal experience.

Why you should visit it

This disused 19th century power station is now home to one of the best collections of Greek and Roman statues in the world. It’s a fascinating example of industrial archaeology converted into a museum.

Special tip

You can still smell the odour of the machinery.
