Nice carpets of ancient flemish craftsmen. À nice difference with the baroc art decorations in churches. We idd have to wait à while untill the keeper showed up to open the Gates during openinghours.

“Flemish tapestries to bedazzle the eye”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

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.
