At €3.50 each to get in this was very good value for money. The Alter alone is worth the euros. Beautiful. And I mean beautiful. Small inside but packed with religious antiquities. We're not particularly religious but thus was a little gem if a find. You can but baked sweeties/cakes from the nuns next door. I won't say more other than 'interesting' (but in a good way).

This is a museum that does "what it says on the tin", ie it is a museum of religious art and is exactly that - perhaps for those with a more specialised interst than your average visitor. Extensive examples of religious staues, pictures etc of the sort that can be seen in churches all over the town. Little in the way of additional information and none in english. Visited one afternoon - had to knock for the door to be unlocked and was accompanied around the entire series of displays by the attendant whose english was to same standard as my spanish.

This is a must for anyone interested in history and art. We were taken around by a quiet, helpful guide who did his best to answer our questions (though we don't know if he spoke anything but Spanish). The church is very ornate and the museum is a mine of information on the history and life of the religious community of which it's a part. Look out especially for the nativity scene set in a model of the old town of Antequera.

I think that few people nowadays see a visit to a museum as being a worthwhile use of their time on holiday, but this museum covers prehistoric to recent times and can be viewed in around 2 hours. It is free on Sundays (10 till 2). The roman burial chamber is both impressive and instructive, as are the mosaics. The pictures mean little to tourists but the jewelry is still of interest.

This would have been a highlight of our stay in Antequera but when we rang the bell on the door as instructed to enter, we were accosted by a very angry Spanish man who shouted at us and shut the door in our faces. We must have done something wrong to upset him but there is no excuse for treating visitors in this way.
