Lorca is not a name that appears as "must see when in Spain". Well we spent a few days here and loved it. While only a small museum, the craftsmanship is absolutely amazing as it is in its competitor, the Azul museo

Visited today as part of a day out from Los Alcazares. Really enjoyed an hour’s walk around. As previously mentioned the church is stunning! Great value as well.

This small museum including a video presentation and attached chapel is well worth the two euros admission. The embroidery is breathtaking and this combined with the video has made us determined to return to see Semana Santa for ourselves. The restored chapel is stunning. If...More

Shocked to find there was no charge to enter this place. Really is worth a visit. And the chapel is a must as it is one of the finest you may see anywhere
