Alhama de Granada Parish Museum

LoadingAdd to My Granada

The Museo Parroquial is located within the Iglesia Mayor de la Encarnación. It has a magnificent collection of religious jewellery and liturgical vestments. One of the most interesting pieces is the embroidered chasuble attributed to Queen Isabel.

The religious dress is made of red velvet embroidered with silk and gold thread and dates back to the 15th or early 16th century. The embroidery has a section that runs vertically, both front and back, depicting images of saints. The coat of arms of Cardinal Cisneros is depicted on the top on the front and the bottom back of the garment. San Bartholomew and St Andrew are also on the back of the dress, whilst St Peter, St John the Evangelist and St James are on the front.
