Strange museum with lots and lots and lots of pictures of Jesus. If you're into that, fair play, but don't go out of your way to visit. Let us in for free though which was ok.

This unassuming museum is well worth a visit. I loved the Benedictine cloisters. The religious Art work rivalled or was better than Florence's.

The start was off-putting. There was a courtyard lined with capitals and other unlabelled bits of carved marble. A large room (former church?) of labelled sculptures followed. We kept going ....up stairs. Wow! Numerous 12th century guilded crucifixes, then altar pieces. Best of all were...More

An ancient but sad and neglected building which I assume may have been devastated in the middle of the last century. But the contents are exquisite and lovingly displayed. Spectacular even to someone as inexpert as myself. As others have noted there are few visitors...More
