Specialty Museum Museum
Housed inside the Colegio de San Gregorio, National Sculpture Museum contains an array of sculptures dating from the Middle Ages to the 19th century. Wooden polychrome pieces, which come mainly from convents, donations, and state acquisitions, figure prominently in the collection. You can usually only admire these pieces from a distance at Spain’s churches and cathedrals, but here you can inspect their intricate details up close. From the outside the cathedral, admire the intricate facade of the 15th-century Colegio de San Gregorio.

  • Surprisingly interesting and
  • Very interesting Museum with very well preserved sculptures. There is also a patio with lawn and a Bank, to rest a while during the visit. You have the option of using audio guide. See the visit later complete the around Central magnificent of 2 hours and a half, more or less, but it is worth. I went on Wednesday, and by having youth card I went visit free. You would also be free if you go Sunday, and if you go one Saturday I think that also would be you free.
