Diocesan Museum

 

Beside the Cathedral is the Episcopal Palace, which contains the Diocesan Museum. The architect Fernando Barja Noquerol remodeled the building for the museum and Gustavo Torner was the person who selected the art pieces on display, from the large collection of art in the diocese and Cathedral. There are fine paintings, two of them by El Greco. El Greco painted “Oracion en el Huerto” and “Cristo con la Cruz”. There are many altarpieces, tapestries, metalwork, sculpture, and liturgical objects. There are several impressive Crucifixion scenes of sculptures showing Christ on the cross. There are eight paintings done by Juan de Borgoña that show scenes from the life of Christ.
