A wonderful museum with a world classic collection in a wonderful building. Inevitably there is a concentration on religion but this does not detract from the artistic excellence.

To my mind this is one of the very best art collections anywhere. Mostly polychrome religious statues and iconography this collection is a delight in an almost equally delightful setting. Well lit and presented it’s a bargain at 3 euros. Closed Mondays.

Housed in a magnificent building, the exhibits will amaze even if you're not religious. One of the highlights of our stay.

We didn't know quite what to expect here but were delighted by both the setting and the displays. Some beautiful pieces and well worth a visit.

I was told that this muse has the largest collection of Medieval sculptures in Spain. The sculpture size is from very large to small. You will be awe struck! The pieces are presented well and are not crammed in a small room. The colour and...More
