This has to be one of the hidden treasures of European museums. It's collection, devoted largely to Spanish medieval art, includes a large sample of frescoes, second only to the collection in the MNAC in Barcelona. The displays are lovely, the staff is charming and helpful, and the tours (both of the museum and the small city of Jaca) are... More

The history in this area is unbelievable. I am amazed at the ability of people who had much less technology than we do today!

If you like art and enjoy Romanic paintings, this is one of the places to go to. Don't miss out the Three Wise Men tableau from the church in Navasa, a masterpiece.

Though I am not religious, this museum is worth a visit for it's art collection. The museum and the cathedral give an appreciation of the history and faith of Jaca.

Very interesting pieces belonging to the cathedral but also to nearby churches. The pieces have been brought in to be preserved. Make sure to sign up for the tour since it includes the museum tour and a visit to the convention de las Benitas.

This is a worthwhile extension of the visit of the Jaca Cathedral. Great pieces of religious art are now preserved in the museum.

Inside Jaca romanesque cathedral (quite a jewel in Europe) this museum shows very valious pieces of catholic art, from Romanesque (the biggest and most valious part) to Gothic, Renaaissance and Baroque. On some moments of the day a guide would explain the religious and historic context and how to "read" some of the pieces. There is a room decorated as... More

This little museum is amazing. The art and artifacts are arranged chronologically to match the history of the area. It is attached to the Cathedral of Jaca.

If you like romanesque religious art this is one of the best collection of Spain if not Europe: it compares with the Museo de Arte de Catalunya (Barcelona), the Museo Episcopal de Vich and the romanesques churches of the Vall de Boí. Jewel in the crown, the Bagüés room is a unique exemple of how romanesque churches were painted from... More

Museo Diocesano occupies part of the Jaca cathedral complex. It is accessible through the cathedral. The museum looks very modern and is very well-organized. To me, the museum is truly distinctive because of the amazing collection of frescoes from small Romanesque churches around Jaca. Upper floor has some nice works from Gothic and Renaissance periods.
