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.

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...More
