Cathedral Museum


Art in the Cathedral

It is set in the Gothic cloister of Ourense Cathedral and has objects of exceptional quality on display.

Among the works that can be seen at this museum, special mention should be made of: the San Martín reliquary chest, dating from 1200, the so-called "Cruz Preciosa" cross, attributed to master metal smith Enrique de Arfe in 1515, the Auriense missal from 1494, a jet cross made in a León workshop in 1497, a processional monstrance from 1604, and the "Treasure of San Rosendo", containing eight pieces from a 10th-century chess set from the Egyptian Fatimi dynasty, crafted in rock crystal. There are also sculptures, liturgical robes and religious jewels on display.
