- It's not every day you get the opportunity to visit a museum where a workforce of up to 50 people produces and restores tapestries using 18th-century techniques. In addition to the worshops, there's a gallery where you can examine the tapestries, rugs and carpets that are made here. The factory opened in 1721 during the reign of Felipe V, and only became a public museum in the mid-1980s. Admission required. There are guided tours in Spanish, French and English.
