Cadiz Cathedral museum
The Cathedral Museum is situated in the old Casa de la Contaduría (Patio de los Condes), located on the cavea of the ancient Roman Amphitheater in Cádiz. In reality it is a group of buildings around the tower of the Old Cathedral of Santa Cruz, which in addition to the House of the Contaduría also includes the House of the Canonical Termineli and the Patio Mudéjar and House of the Dean.
The Museum occupies the ground floor and first floor, with access from Plaza Fray Félix through a Mannerist frontispiece, adorned with diamond tips, which support the wrought iron balcony with the coat of arms of the Cathedral.
A large room allows the viewing of various pictorial works among which La Inmaculada Grande stands out, a painting from the Madrid School.
Crossing the courtyard of the Casa di Termineli, you reach the Patio Mujedar. Roman and Medieval remains can be seen here. Through this courtyard you can access a series of rooms that house tables, paintings, ivories and sculptures of great value, as well as chalices and other important works of gold and silver, mostly from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
More recently a room has been dedicated to the Cortes (national assembly) of Cádiz of 1812 and its relationship with the Church is explained. In this room there are documents and objects that refer to these events, among which the decree of abolition of the Inquisition stands out, the staves of the Te Deum composed for that occasion and the table on which the church signed the constitutional text.
