    This cathedral museum is located inside the Badajoz Metropolitan Cathedral. Here you can admire Islamic pottery from 10th century, official documents with the dates the first diocese in Badajoz was created and documents regarding construction of the cathedral. You can also contemplate ceremonial objects, such as cruets, chalices, pyxes, etc.

    This museum also holds works of art by the painter Luis de Morales (nicknamed The Divine One), amongst which "Pietà" is noteworthy. Madonna and Child, by Donatello's disciple, Desiderio da Settignano, can also be admired here.
