This museum is of no help whatsoever to increasing our knowledge of th Visigoths. It is only aimed at the Spanish visitor. An audio tour would be easy to make and help those who are not Spanish. I complained to the entrance people and they...More

Was really excited to see this museum when planning our trip - visited lots of sites with Roman history and Medieval, but this was the first time with anything involving the Visigoths. The museum is in a beautiful old church which is the perfect setting...More

Would have given this site five stars, except that there is no information in English. So if you can't read Spanish, the benefit is restricted. I managed to understand just enough to enjoy the visit. The location is inside a former church, which has magnificent...More

Museum is inside nice church. 2€ for an adult. t's really small, short exposition, but unfortunately no English guide. No boards of even a paper so.. For Spanish people it's probably worthy, for people who don't speak Spanish it's useless.

The exhibitions are in Spanish only, but not hard to decipher and this is a beautiful space with fascinating history. Definitely worth a visti.

This is a small museum without display explanation in English. Certainly one can visually enjoy the architecture, murals, jeweled displays and the alter-piece. We felt fortunate to be in the company of a guide who explained the time, place and influence of the Visigoths. The...More

The Visagoda Museum was a real find. The Museum is located inside the 13th century Mudejar Church of San Roman with well-preserved 13th century frescos covering the walls of the church. The museum has an excellent archaeological collection from the 6, 7 and 8th centuries...More
