One of the most beautiful museum`s I´ve ever visited! The kind of the work they show there is amazing ! Handwork, magnificent embroidery is shown there. It´s a must, don´t miss it. Don´t forget to pick a leaflet to know their story. Awesome place.

If you are in the area and admire quality craftsmanship then you have to visit. Although fundamentally it is about religion, this is not just for the religious. Most events have costumes that look good at a distance but are "cheap" up close. These costumes...More

Incredible to see, the workmanship, it is just stunning. You learn the history of the parades during Holy Week too. If you go to Lorca and to visit, you are missing a great opportunity to see how history is made and still admired today.
