Tons of Tapestries

Founded by Philip V in 1721, this tapestry factory was built before the Spanish had any knowledge of tapestry making, so experts were brought in from the Netherlands. Goya himself provided the paintings for many of the tapestries. The factory now conducts guided tours showcasing its history as well as the complex and time consuming process required to produce these works of art.
