The best tapestries that can be seen
Jan 2020
To see this wonderful collection of tapestries it is essential to make a trip to Pastrana, I have not seen anything like it in my trips to the preserved bine that are after five centuries, how great they are, all the details they have, one can spend hours recreating in them, it seems that you are seeing a painting instead of a tapestry because of the color they have, they also narrate a historical fact the Portuguese conquest of two cities in North Africa, if you choose a guided tour while admiring the tapestries, you receive a history class from the late fifteenth century,
annex to the tapestry museum the crypt of the parish church as well as the collection of goldsmith carvings that they have in their sacristy deserve also a time for their enjoyment and contemplation, especially the sculptures of the famous wood sculptor Alonso Cano

Beautiful Main Altar
May 2017 • Friends
The main altar in this church is very impressive. When I went, the place was dark, so I asked the parish priest if he could light the altar for a few minutes so that I could photograph it. He was very kind and did so. The altar was very impressive and it had the paintings of 10 female saints. I was able to take my photograph, thanks to the priest.

A wonderful museum worth it fir the Flemish tapestries
Jan 2017 • Family
So we were taken to the church by friends and it was quite late. There was mass being held in one of the chapels so we tiptoed round quietly till it finished. It turned out our friend was a good friend of the priest who insisted on showing us round the cathedral, the museum and the vaults. A personal tour from a guide without equal. He has a cast knowledge of church, art, history, etc and it was pastries unforgettable.

After a tour round the church with information about the art and St Teresa of Ávila, we went into the parochial museum which house simply the best preserved 16th century Flemish tapestry I have ever seen. The colours were vivid and bright, not faded as is usual in tapestries of this age. And the detail of the design was good enough to rival the Bayeux tapestry! This was the highlight for me and beautifully presented and described by our guide. The rest of the museum was just as remarkable and memorable.

The vault was quiet and peaceful.

Highly recommended !
