Santiago de Compostela Cathedral Museum

Recommended
The visit starts with a lapidary museum (Maestro Mateo's Romanesque coro (choir) pieced together after digs, including the horses of the Wise Men); then you proceed to the large cloister (early 16C) combining a Gothic structure and a plateresque decor, and, off the cloister, the chapter house and treasury. Upstairs, you visit the library and enter rooms with displays of remarkable tapestries from designs by Goya, Bayeu, Rubens and Teniers. The museum ticket also covers the crypt of the Portico da Gloria (access at the entrance to the cathedral's main stairs), which was built in the 11C.
