Treasury of the Collegiate Church of San Isidoro

Highly recommended
This ecclesiastical museum's collection is of considerable historical and artistic significance. Among its treasures are the reliquary of St Isidore (11C), a wood casket covered in hammered gold and silverwork; the Doña Urraca chalice composed of two Romano-Oriental onyx cups; and a 12C enamel casket incorporating 17 leather panels decorted with Limoges enamelwork. The library has 800 parchments, 400 incunabula including a Mozarabic bible (960), and 1 055 rare and ancient books (16C-18C).
