This is a small but beautyful and well made private museum completely owned by the convent (place and all shown objects). After the entrance you pass a forecourt to the museum wing. Important note: only a certain part (approx 1/4) of the monastery is accessible, the rest is being used by the convent thus closed to the public which unfortunately... 更多
This convent was built on top of a Islamic Palace and houses a fine museum of religious artifacts and a series of 17th and 18th paintings. The convent is still lived in by nuns. This is a 2 minute walk from the Cathedral and has glass doors entrance and is free entrance so has got to be worth a look.... 更多
It was one of the most surprising things we did while in Murcia. Been able to walk inside a cloistered monastery is something one cannot get to do everyday. Amazing experience and amazing tour.

While the Museum is noted for its Islamic artifacts which are excellent, we were drawn to the section which exhibited religious art from the monastery, especially the dressed saints and Virgin. The costuming is outstanding. As Murcia had an important silk industry, one can only wonder how much of the fabrics were created in the city.
Majestic museum to observe the antiquity of the constructions of the city and its Muslim origins, low-cost guided tour
