Museo de la Santísima Trinidad

Castilla-La Mancha

The best of Atienza’s three museums is inside the Iglesia de la Santísima Trinidad. Its soaring altarpiece and golden rococo-style side chapel are befitting of a church 10 times the size. Upstairs you’ll see a rather eerie 16th-century catafalque (coffin platform) painted with skeletons.
