Pilgrimages Museum of Santiago de Compostela
The Pilgrimages Museum (Museo de las Peregrinaciones in Spanish) is located in a building known as La Casa Gótica, but has been reformed many times since it was constructed in the fourteenth century.
Eight rooms of the museum are dedicated to the historical significance that the way of Santiago has had in the European and Hispanic-American culture.
The tour begins with the road taken as a common religious phenomena to different people and cultures. The road and the pilgrimage ritual are displayed in documented travel books and pictures of the pilgrims.
It also has a room dedicated to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela, where the information is focused on the road and the development of the city.
The most important work is the Santiago Peregrino by Juan de Juanes. In this museum we can find the entire iconographic repertoire of the holy apostle.
The museum conserves important collections of sculptures, prints, and jewelry much like a specialized pilgrimage library.
