Museum of the Councils and Visigoth Culture
The Museum of the Councils and Visigothic Culture is located in the Church of San Roman in the Plaza San Roman. This museum has archaeological collections from the 6th, 7th and 8th centuries that are related to the old capital of the Visigothic Kingdom of Toledo. There are capitals of columns, reliefs, epigraphic pieces, painting, documents, moldings and gold and silver work. An important exhibit has the trousseaus that were found in the Carpio de Tajo Necropolis. There are very good reproductions of the votive crowns from the treasure of Guarrazar.
The church has three naves in the form of a basilical base. These are separated by Moorish horseshoe arches that are supported on pillars. There are also columns with Visigothic capitals and the altarpiece was made by Diego de Velasco. There are frescos that cover the walls from the 13th century, with Roman and Moorish influences.
