More beautiful than expected
Nov 2021
If though I had read descriptions, I have to say that I was surprised by the beauty of this museum, set inside a church.

Personally I would have piped in a bit of Gregorian chant to enhance the experience, but the floats, used in the Our Lady of the Pillar Festival are truly beautiful and very nicely presented.

A small addition to the general ticket for the Seo Cathedral and the Tower of the Pillar Cathedral, it's worth the visit.

Crystal Rosary
Mar 2020 • Solo
Located inside the Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is a large collection of crystal floats. I’ve never seen floats made entirely of glass before and I must say it was one of the most unique displays I’ve seen. I was the only visitor at the time so my experience was quite personalized. Upon entering and paying the entrance fee, I watched a short introduction film about the history of the floats and their construction. As I proceeded through the displays, a narrative played and lights illuminated the floats. Stunning!

Sacred Heart Church is the place that stores the lights and floats that parade the city during Our Lady of the Pillar festivities.
When my husband and I arrived, a family had just started the visit, so we joined them around the exhibit. It´s important to pace your visit to the illumination of the floats. You´ll miss the beauty of the stained glass if they´re turned off.

We read about this on a travel blog and so decided to check it out. We visited with an eight year old and 2 sixteen year olds and surprisingly they did quite enjoy it.
We are not overly religious yet we could appreciate the beauty and the effort that was put into the creation of each of the lanterns. You start at the first lantern and a voiceover tells you about the lantern that your looking at ( in Spanish which we understand)
It was a nice way to spend half hour

The most amazing thing would be to be here in October when these fantastic glass structures are pulled through the streets! Never the less these are wonderful to see and especially wait to watch when they are lit up which they are in rotation so you can walk round enjoying the individual complexities. They are amazing!

We are used to see these colored glasses in churches, but we never actually pay attention to them. Here we could see beautiful creations, that were a little different then what we are used to. It is pleasant to the eye.
Also, they turn down the lights periodically inside the creations, I would recommend to wait for the lights to turn up, that makes it a lot more better.

This museum like church storages a number of of religious relics with great history. you don't need to be christian to visit this place, just be able to admire art! The small entrance fee is nothing but perfect to spend a couple to hours.

Amazing!
Apr 2017 • Solo
This is next to the Roman theatre & in my opinion, far more interesting. Only 2 euro entrance. You sit & listen to a brief intro, then one by one, each display is illuminated & you follow it around till the end. The whole thing lasted approx 20-30mins. Unfortuntately, the entire explanation was in Spanish & I didnt see any booklet or info in English. Its still worth going because they are stunning. Apparently the illuminations are used in processions which must be magnificant. The building itself is also beautiful with several displays, so look at the ceiling & the walls as you pass through. A must do whilst in Zaragoza!

Surprising
Apr 2017 • Couples
We came across this museum by chance and gave it a try, not really knowing what to expect. At first we thought we were going to be disappointed as we were expected to sit down and listen to an audio commentary in Spanish. We stuck it out to see what happened and once the exhibits started to be lit, each one in succession, we were eagerly waiting for the next. Recommended as something a bit different and it really doesn't matter if you can't follow the commentary.

Just ... wow

Every October, the city of Zaragoza has a procession to celebrate The Rosary, and, in a similar way to the carrying of statues in the Holy Week processions, for this one, vast devotional images made of glass are carried around. These (for the night-time procession) are illuminated. And when I say vast, this is what I mean - a 10-foot long model of the Pilar Basilica, for example; a massive ship; a huge castle.

The images are all on display (and fully illuminated) at the church in the square of San Pedro Nolasco, and the entrance fee is only a couple of Euros.

Whether you're a devoted Roman Catholic or not, this is an astonishingly impressive display, and very definitely worth a visit - it's a sort of collision between Blackpool Illuminations and Semana Santa.
