Also in the sacristy, as in the Pilar, a valuable collection of works of art is exhibited, whose care is exclusively the responsibility of the staff at the service of the temple.
The silver busts should be noted, among which the one of San Valero stands out, donated by Pope Luna in 1397; the beautiful monstrance built by Pedro Lamaisón; the oliphant of Gascón de Béarne and various religious ornaments of great merit.

The rich collection of tapestry from the 14th to the 17th centuries, which constitutes only a part of those that owns the metropolitan council.

As outstanding pieces of the exhibited collection, we must highlight the one entitled "The Ships", "Brutus Expedition to Aquitaine", a mythological subject conceptualized as unique, supposed French loom, XV century.
"The Crucifixion", a magnificent cloth that contains a large number of scenes from the Passion of the Lord, together with allegories of Abraham's bosom and an expressive grotto of hell. Specimen also belonging to a French loom from the end of the 14th century.

The "Exaltation of the Holy Cross", allusive to the rescue of the cross and its entry into Jerusalem by Emperor Heracio.

From the series "Vices and Virtues", the representative of "Original sin and passions in the life of man" is highly interesting and worthy of careful contemplation, it is from the 16th century and comes from the Brussels loom.
With great appeal for its originality and charm is the series of tapestries entitled "Moses drying up the Nile", "Moses throwing down the crown".
