This museum was inaugurated in 2002 and operates in an old manor house near the Parish Church of Saint Christopher, headquarters of the Archconfraternity of the Holy Christ of the Blood, known as the Paso Encarnado.
The building of the Church of Saint Christopher dates from the 17th century, although it was at the end of the 18th century when the sacristy and the new doorway in the shape of an altarpiece by Juan de Uzeta, in Rococo style, were erected.
The Paso Encarnado Embroidery Museum exhibits pieces such as cloaks, banners, flags, and butler's robes, embroidered in gold and silk on red velvet. These embroideries are worn in Lorca's Maundy Thursday procession, the Procession of Silence.
