Information from the museum website and the Fundación Carlos de Amberes, 19 January 2010
For two months, the Jubelparkmuseum in Brussels shows four exceptional tapestries that are normally to be seen in the museum of the parish church In Pastrana, Spain. In 2009 they have been restored in Belgium. Before they return to Spain, they will be shown in the Jubelparkmuseum in Brussels
The late 15th-century tapestries from Tournai depict the military expeditions of the Portuguese king Alfonso V on the Moroccan coast.
The Fundación Carlos de Amberes in Madrid took the initiative for the restoration, which was undertaken by Koninklijke Manufactuur De Wit in Mechelen. It received support from the Belgian fund InBev-Baillet Latour and the Spanish Fundación Caja Madrid.
