If you are an admirer of wall art and the looming and embroidery skills of medieval Europe, this museum will be an important stop in any visit to Spain. The climate here is a significant reason for the nearly perfect condition of these masterworks.

As a rule I am rather bored by tapestries but these are quite exceptional. They show scenes from life, starting shortly after 1400. Colours, designs, movement are all remarkable. It's like looking at a film made 600 years ago. Highly recommended.

Included with the entrance ticket to the Seo. Really interesting but be advised that on our visit all the information signs were only in Spanish.

Fantastico. The taperies were astonishing. Did not know they were there, in the back of the cathedral. Have to take a peak!

The admission to the church also allows you to view the many tapestries in the collection. It is on the upper floors but is handicap accessible. They have a worthwhile audioguide available for a nominal charge which I recommend getting. The examples are from the...More

If you visit La Seo, your ticket includes an entrance to that museum. If not in a hurry it’s worth a quick look. The tapestry is mainly Flemish from 15th and 16th century – at least that’s what I understood from descriptions which are available...More
