Museum of the Cathedral of Coria (15th-18th Century)

Museum of Religious Art inside the Holy Cathedral Church of Coria.

The 15th-18th-century Holy Cathedral Church of St. Mary of the Assumption (Santa Iglesia Catedral de Santa María de la Asunción) houses a remarkable permanent collection of religious art from the 14th to the 19th centuries. Majestically rising above what was the southern section of the ancient Roman City Walls—right on the edge of the ravine that once saw the still waters of the Alagón River flow—stands this grandiose temple constructed with fine granite ashlar masonry. Its layout is a huge rectangular nave, as a grand hall, measuring 17 m wide by 25 m high, which is divided into five vaulted sections with star-shaped ribs. Laid out from east to west and north to south are some impressive structures, halls and chapels that define the historical-artistic route of the interactive virtual tour.

Traces, altarpieces, sculptures, paintings, vestments, codices and a wide reserve of silversmith’s craft and Holy Relics, especially, the Sacred Tablecloth of the Last Supper, together constitute this outstanding Cathedral Museum.
