Be prepared for a surprise at how stunning this set of eight large Flemish tapestries is. And how unexpected to find them in Marsala. Very well conserved since their creation in the 16thC, they depict a rather idealised conquest of Jerusalem by Vespasian and Titus in the 1st century CE and project the relevance of that to the Hapsburgs' intended, but failed, pacification of the Protestant Netherlands in the mid 16th C. The museum is just at the back of the Mother Church in a cool and airy modern interior which shows off the works very well.
