Description

A small sacred art museum set up in the baroque rooms of the monastery of Santa Clara where a collection of religious art is exhibited. We can highlight two unique pieces of ivory and medieval gold and silverware: the Virgen Abrideira, made of ebony and ivory with a natural wood core; and the Cruz de cristal de roca, a compendium of materials and techniques of medieval precious metals, both belonging to the chapel of the queen who founded the monastery, Doña Violante, the wife of King Alfonso X of Castile.
