Ourense Cathedral Museum

Ourense Cathedral Museum

The museum

The museum was opened in 1957 and installed in the gothic cloister of the Cathedral of Ourense, from the 13th century. The museum houses funds from a variety of periods. The collection can be grouped into series: liturgical objects (goblets, trays...); the treasure of San Rosendo from the Monastry of Celanova; liturgical clothing and religious sculpture and painting.

The most noteworthy pieces are: the Santa Eufemia kist, the Missal Auriense (printed in 1494, the first printed book in Galicia), the processional cross attributed to Enrique Arfe, and a series of vitreous enamel by Limoges that belonged to a 12th century kist.
