As an alternative to the busier tourist there is a wealth of cultural venues to visit amongst its many galleries and museums. Probably the most visited of these is the Wax Museum, or Museo de Cera. This is like a small version of Madame Tussaud’s in London as it has waxworks of many of the celebrities of today and of historical characters.
