I have done a separate review of the cathedral. Access to the tapestry museum is part of your cathedral entrance price. The stunning tapestries are worth a visit on their own, and I make the point that touring the cathedral can be quite tiring and I would advise starting with the tapestries. Three rooms of huge hung tapestries. Explanations in English with a free handset.

The beauty and the way they succeeded to preserve all these flamish tapestries is incredible. In principle you have to go there for several hours to really appreciate the works So look at the opening times. In Spain they love to close churches and musea many hours during day time.

When visiting La Seo del Salvador, the admission ticket (4 euros) also includes a visit to the upstairs museum which houses the incredible collection of antique tapestries spread over three rooms. In total, there are 63 works on display. Most of these tapestries are first editions that date back to the 15th-16th centuries. The enormous size of these pieces is incredible. The detail is unreal. The stories told on each piece represent important moments in history and legends. If you look closely, you can see which ones have been restored as opposed to those still awaiting restoration. Photography is strictly prohibited.

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.

The Medieval tapestry museum is housed in the Chapter House within La Seo del Salvador on Plaza La Seo. Entry to the tapestries is included in the fee to visit the Cathedral: four euros.

The collection of 63 tapestries is considered of historical importance in Spain, designed and created in the 15th and 16th centuries, they are hung in three large exhibition rooms. The collection is definitely worth visiting to see the intricate weaving and designs, fine threads, stunning colours. The theme of the tapestries range from religious, mythological, historical and moral.

Over 4.9 Million Euros has been spent on the museum and the tapestries, of which 21 tapestries have been restored. Some of the tapestries hanging are in poor condition, so hopefully money raised from entrance fees can go towards preserving these precious items. To help preserve the tapestries they are hung in dimly light rooms, in fact one room at the time of our visit was in darkness and unfortunately was not open for viewing. No photography is allowed.

The first time I saw tapestries from medieval times at Musee de Moyen Age in Paris I was captivated by the designs and their skills, this collection is well worth a visit.

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.

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.

A wonderful exhibition of superb, well'preserved, vividly colored and historically significant tapestries are housed upstairs in La Seo Cathedral´s Museo de Tapices. Viewing these was a highlight of the cathedral visit. Unfortunately, photographs were not allowed and there was no souvenir book featuring the collection. However, there are detailed explanations of the tapestries on display in Spanish and English on site.

This small but exquisite museum does not have many rooms but the medieval tapestries are stunning, high quality and well kept with amazing colours and lovely impressions of medieval art and life. Entry comes with a visit of the Cathedral which is equally worth seeing. Unfortunately the whole thing closes in the aftrernoon, like so many places in Zaragoza, so plan your visit in the morning.
