17 March-19 June 2005. Lovers of Spanish history should look no further than this wonderful new show covering the Middle Ages. Put away your books and take in this colourful display of mediaeval fashions at the Palacio Real de Madrid until early summer. Some of the finest quality suits of the Spanish Middle Ages, worn by kings as well as children, are on display in the Vestiduras ricas (Rich Clothes) exhibition.

The costumes date to the years 1170-1340, from the foundation of the Huelgas line until the reign of Alfonso XI.
