The tapestries are awesome and well worth taking the time to see if you visit the Church of La Seo. There are numerous rooms filled with enormous tapestries, so detailed, and quite overwhelming to think they were made without modern equipment.

The collection is the gem of the Spanish historical heritage and it is one of the most important collections of tapestries in the world due to its age and rarity They belong to 15-th and 16-th centuries.

The tapestries in this small museum have maintained their color over the centuries and are very good. It is seldom that one finds such good tapestries in any museum in Europe. The designs were very good.

this museum contains the most spectacular tapestries I've ever seen - far exceeding those in the Musee de Cluny in Paris. The workmanship is mindboggling and the artistry is wonderful. Each face has so many individual expressions, so much subtlty it is hard to imagine they are delivered with needlework. Please don't miss seeing these wonderful works of art.

We really did not expect much from this museum, but what a surprise it was to see well preserved tapestry pieces, and they are jus magnificent. Well worth visiting without a doubt. Need 1 hour there.
