Wonderful to see the artisans work and a great religious history. A must see during Easter in this small town.

The Blue Brotherhood museum is amazing. Very cheap entry, and a lot to see. Amazing embroidery and you can watch the women at work (& talk with them if you speak Spanish!). Incredible skill. Even close up, seeing the detail it looks like a masterpiece...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.

This is a must for those visiting Lorca. The exhibits are stunning. It is spacious and well laid out but it is on three floors served by stairs and a lift.
