Description

Set in a spectacular palace

The museum is located in the La Granja Royal Palace, a magnificent example of European palace architecture in the Sierra del Guadarrama mountains.

The palace rooms are luxuriously decorated with Carrara marble, and you can see various items of Japanese lacquer, along with crystal lamps from the La Granja Royal Glass Factory. Highlights of the Tapestry Museum include the Flemish Apocalypse series, The Triumphs of Petrarch and the Honours and Virtues series, based on cartoons by Goya. There are also paintings on glass by Luca Giordano, dating from the end of the 17th century.
