DISCOVER THE FLEMISH TAPESTRIES OF THE PATRIARCA
Fecha de publicación: 09/02/2017

The chapel of the Colegio del Patriarca, one of the most interesting renaissance buildings in the city, shines splendidly following the restoration of four of the six 16th century Flemish tapestries that adorn it.


The restoration, carried out by the Royal Tapestries Factory, has permitted the recovery of the colours that remained hidden under a thick layer of dirt and accumulation of smoke from the altar candles they were exposed to for centuries.

 

The tapestries belong to an age of splendour in Flemish tapestry and were made in the best workshops in Brussels. To the quality and aesthetic of these fabrics we can add iconographic interest, with a great parallel with those found in Zamora Cathedral and the exquisite National Heritage series, acquired by Isabel La Católica.

 

The tapestries can be seen with the general entrance ticket to the Museum and with the guided tour, which also takes in the cloisters, the staircase, the church and the museum, with works by El Greco, Joan de Joanes and Ribalta, and which can be booked at http://patriarcavalencia.es


 For an experience more fitting of the age, from Tuesday to Sunday at 9:30 and Thursday at 18:30 the Church of el Patriarca offers mass in Gregorian chant.
