  • This other great unknown museum to both visitors and locals alike is found in front of the city’s principal Cathedral. The vast and eclectic collection of the sculpture Frederic Mares is housed in the Real Mayor palace in the Gothic Area, and includes an unequaled collection of Christ’s on the Cross. Another section of the museum, known as Sentimental Museum, contains a collection of daily use articles such as fans, clothing, etc
  • Amazing museum of art that covers 10 centuries. There are plenty of crucified messiahs and Virgins with sons but also weapons, fans, and risqué cigarette cards! Uncrowded, little known, and fascinating
