The National Gallery of Scotland attracts almost as many tourists as nearby Edinburgh Castle. As a part of the National Gallery complex, The National Gallery of Scotland is one of three buildings, along with the Royal Scottish Academy Building and the Weston Link. The National Gallery of Scotland displays examples of European paintings dating back to the early Renaissance and presents some of Scotland's best pieces. The collection contains works by artists such as Raphael, Titian, El Greco, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Gauguin, and Monet, making this a very respected collection. Well known works include Paul Gauguin's 'Vision of the Sermon' and 'Jacob Wrestling with the Angel'.
