Description

Installed in the gothic cloister of Ourense Cathedral, it contains pieces of exceptional quality. We can highlight the tesoro de San Rosendo (San Rosendo’s treasure) from the Celanova monastery, composed of eight chess pieces made of rock crystal, of 10th century Fatimid art. Another piece of outstanding quality is the Cruz Preciosa (Precious Cross) the work of Enrique de Arce and a gift from the Count and Countess of Benavente. It also contains liturgical clothing, sculpture and religious jewellery.
