Museo de Tapices y Textiles de la Catedral


Set in the former 17th-century school for choirboys (the Antiguo Collegio Infantes), this associated Cathedral museum houses magnificent tapestries, some dating as far back as the 15th century. The tapestries have an annual airing on Corpus Christi when they hang outside the cathedral (despite the obvious ill effects from the elements).
