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.

Accessed via the La Seo del Salvador, and included in the price of entry, the tapistry museum consists of three mid-sized rooms filled with tapistries. There is no English commentary/captions, only Spanish - however, the narratives are biblical, so one can make decent guesses at the imagery, and the tapistries are works of art. A quick stop recommended.

The tapestries on display are absolutely beautiful. And there are at least 20 huge tapestries. There is so much going on in each tapestry that you can spend ten minutes on each just going through them properly. A huge plus is that entry fee for the museum is included in the entry fee for the Cathedral

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 major centers of tapestry making, Belgium, the Netherlands, etc. They are hung as they should... 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 only in Spanish.
