Quite a beautiful museum
Jul 2018 • Friends
There is a little for everyone in this museum including fact the building dates from the 16 th century. Some nice religious art, some aRoman pieces as well as Visagoth and medieval things. Part of the museum was also a church dating back to the 12 th century.

Good Museum
Apr 2018 • Couples
This museum shows archaeology, ethnography and fine arts. There are costumes and Roman artifacts. There is a beautiful Roman sculpture of Triton and Nereida from the 3rd century BC. For fine art there is a tryptich showing the life of Christ and the Virgin Mary. There is also a carving of the Crucifixion. There is a beautiful portrait of the Marquesa de Espeja, which was painted by Ricardo de Madrazo in 1892. He was the son of the artist Federico de Madrazo. This painting is the highlight of the museum.

Museum of Avila / House of Deans / Church of Santo Tome el Viejo
Nov 2017 • Solo
Institution of the Museum of Avila was found in 1911, since then was moved through several locations and in 1969 arrived in former House of the Deans. Building is made in typical 16th century Castillan style and was originally used as the residence of the Deans of the Cathedral chapter. Construction is made up of a main body, distributed around two level atrium and an annexe, which was in it`s prime used as stables. Main facade, made in plateresque fashion, have coats of arms that bear witness to its original function. Today, visitor can enjoy wealth of exponents, divided in ten rooms, with fine arts, traditional culture and ethnographical items and really comprehensive historical and archaeological expose ranging from prehistory, Roman and Vizigothic, to medieval and modern times.

Museum added another building in 1997, the former Church of Santo Tome el Viejo. Romanesque church dates from the second half of 12th century and has three naves and a top with three apses. Today serves both as visitable and storage area which perfectly complements nearby House of the Deans and is full with marvelous stone artefacts like „Verracos“ (pre-Roman Iberian sclupture of stone boars, symbolical for peninsula), Roman, Vizigothic, Arab, Jewish and Castillan stellas, millstones, altars, kapitels and other carvings. Building itself is masterly conserved. For everybody interested in local culture, history and archeology, this Museum (or two) is an essential visit and entrance is free.

The holy life of Sta Teresa de Avila
Apr 2017 • Family
Glimpse the devotion of Sta Teresa to her spiritual life, which inspired many others to dedicate their own lives to God's service.
