The Holy Land Treasures

Cartão Gulbenkian Mais programme

Event Slider

André Afonso, the Treasures from Kings. Masterpieces from the Terra Sancta Museum exhibition’s executive curator, will lead this tour, which is only available to Cartão Gulbenkian Mais holders to mark the final days of the exhibition.

In addition to their religious and artistic significance, the pieces on show have historical and political relevance. For centuries, the Holy Land served as a stage for international diplomacy, with major powers engaging in competition to offer artistic works – goldsmithery, textiles, and furniture – intended for use in worship and the embellishment of religious sites such as the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre and other churches situated in Palestine.
