Diocesan Museum of La Seu d’Urgell

The museum is in the old Casa del Deganat, very close to the cathedral, so it’s called La Seu de Urgell Cathedral Museum.

The Diocesan Museum houses paintings, sculptures and examples of craftwork in gold and silver from parish churches throughout the diocese and the treasures of the cathedral.

You have to pay entrance fee of 3 euros here. But unfortunately photography is prohibited in the museum. They can take money, but we can’t take photos.
So I’ll show here some postcard pictures that I bought in the museum necessarily.

St. Beatus of Liébana (c. 730 – c. 800) is best remembered today as the author of the Commentary on the Apocalypse, written in 776, then revised in 784 and again in 786.

I enjoyed the Romanesque arts in the museum, and then left for the bus station to be going to Andorra.

I really love this little town “La Seu d’Urgell”. It’s quiet and clean, the locals are friendly.
