Centro Interpretativo do Tapete de Arraiolos

Museum in Arraiolos

Overlooking the town's main plaza, this polished, interactive museum delves into the rich history of Arraiolos' tapestry-making traditions, with beautiful works dating to the 17th century. To the right of the ticket desk is a small chapel with a glass floor that allows you to peer down into the medieval dye vats (likely dating from the 1200s) that were unearthed during excavations in 2003.
