"Capella de Santa Ągata" Top 5 Page for this destination Museu de Ceramica Palau Reial - Ceramics Museum Tip by seamandrew

  Capella de Santa Àgata
by seamandrew
 
 

The only thing really worth mentioning about this church is that it is part of the Palau Reial Major , it houses the Condestable altarpiece by Jaume Huguet, and also that and it houses the stone on which Saint Agatha's breasts were mutilated. I assume it's some sort of catholic relic. In case you're curious, construction on the chapel began in the beginning of the 14th century but I don't know when it was completed.
