  • The visit to the Museum perfectly complements the tour of the Cathedral of Murcia, further into the past with its original gothic cloisters (which preserve part of the frescoes that covered its walls) and the ruins of the mosque which was built. Also excellent examples of Gothic painting (Bernabé, Modena), Renaissance (Hernando de Llanos) and Baroque (Lucas Jordán) can be seen, as well as 3 maravilllosas sizes of the murcian school teacher Francisco Salzillo, probably most prominent Spanish religious sculptor of the 18th century.

  • Inaugurated in 1956, and then, after deep transformations, again in 2007, the Museum is housed in the Chapter Hall and part of the old cloister of the Cathedral. On the ground floor, are notable: Roman stone sarcophagus (2nd century BC) reused in 1522 to house the remains of Gil Rodríguez de Junteron who was the Court of Pope Jules II; altarpiece of St. Michael (Gothic); altarpiece of Barnaba da Modena (14th); Moorish Bell. Upstairs, are noticing: Virgin and the Adoration of the shepherds, the work of Fernando de Llanos (1516); bust-reliquary of Saint Priscillien; Statue of St. Jerome penitent by the sculptor Salzillo. Also: many pieces of liturgical and religious silverwork, beautiful statuary. Be sure to notice items to murals restored on the vaults and arches, as well as the glass walkways, archaeological remains discovered during the work and left in situ. A must see.

  • The Museum, fruit of a deep remodelling, occupies the Chapterhouse and part of the old cloister of the fourteenth century of the Cathedral of Murcia, conceived by Bishop Miguel de los Santos and opened to the public in 1956. Their pieces are displayed by thematic groups on two floors.
