Museum of Sacred Art Bilbao

Museo Diocesano de Arte Sacro

The collection of the Diocesan Museum of Sacred Art is not only an exhibition of undeniable historic and artistic value, but is a reflection of the religious experience of a people through artefacts created during a period of more than eight hundred years.

The current collection of the Diocesan Museum consists of carvings, canvases, articles of gold and silver and garments which were found in a serious state of neglect in almost one hundred parishes and chapels in the diocese. Before being shown to the public, these items were subjected to a long process of selection and restoration.
