Provincial Folk Costume Museum (Morón de Almazán)

Like the steps of a staircase, the Council building, the Mendoza Palace and the Church of the Assumption are all placed one after the other on the hillside of Morón de Almazán.

 

The Provincial Folk Costume Museum is located in the town square’s central building, which is considered one of the most beautiful architectural ensembles of the Spanish Renaissance style.

 

The building was erected in the first half of the 16th century following the Renaissance canons, although you can see some Gothic elements, especially in the church which was built in the previous century. The palace stands out for its façade’s sobriety which is decorated with simple alfiz structures that frame the main openings, and the doorway which is crowned with the Mendoza family’s coat of arms.

 

This building is proof of the town’s greatest moments of noble splendour and has become an interesting museum thanks to the Sorian people who have donated their ancestors’ clothing. This collection sheds a light on the Sorian way of life, economy, history and culture.

 

Visitors can travel back in time and learn about traditional clothing ranging from the humble villagers’ outfits to the most elaborate ensembles, as well as the Transhumance shepherds’ clothes or the luxurious cart drivers’ uniforms. These unique pieces of family heritage, often forgotten, contribute to conserving and vindicating the province’s rich cultural legacy, and at the same time, they contribute to defining the historical significance of Sorian folk costumes, while disproving inaccurate interpretations brought on by trends and tastes that aren’t true to the past.
