Travelling to the Eastern world has been on the bucket lists of many in the recent years. It mainly is due to the variety of attractions and activities these countries have to offer as well as their rich culture and history. Indonesia is one such country that has diverse activities and attractions. Bali especially is a sure hit among tourists.
However if you are getting sick of the beaches then there is plenty of other options for you to enjoy while on the island. A hotel in Seminyak could be your base for most of the exploration in and around the area. Seminyak has many famous beaches as well as various other cultural and historically important places to visit and enjoy. One such attraction is Blanco Renaissance Museum.
Blanco is regarded as one of the most famous and well-known artists to have lived in Bali. The Blanco Renaissance Museum was built by the great artist himself. If this is among one of the places to tick off while in Bali, then it is advisable to stay in the close proximity to the museum in Seminyak. One of the often preferred options is Alila Seminyak that’s located in close proximity to the museum as well as the beach.
The museum is located at the top of a mountain overlooking a river. The museum’s architecture is an interesting one with the predominant influence of Balinese architecture mixed with Blanco’s native French architecture. The museum showcases pieces from different periods of his long-standing successful career. Some of the famous pieces of his work include the paintings of his fantasy women. Blanco was the most successful foreign artist to have called Bali home. One of his wishes was to change his studio to a museum but sadly before it’s inauguration he passed away.
