The Alma Mater Museum is located inside a unique palace which has been witness of two thousand years of History where historical characters were accommodated, such as Alphonse I the Battler, the Catholic Monarchs and Pope Luna, and where General Palafox fought against the French troops at the beginning of the 19th century.
It is an architectonical and museum project that combines History with 21st century modernity. The permanent collection offers a tour from the Roman period till present, with artists such as Goya and Bayeu and tapestry designed by Raphael ordered to decorate the Sistine Chapel at the 16th century.
For example, you can visit a 12th century defensive tower, a 15th century Gothic chapel built while king Alphonse V extended the Crown of Aragon borders towards Naples, and the “Identitas” room in which you will know more about Zaragoza and Aragon History. In this room, the audiovisual production “The strength of a character” deserves a special recognition as winner of the Gold Dolphin of the Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards on October 13th 2016.
