  • Excellent museum of medieval sacred arts.
  • In this museum there are some books, of those printed half a millennium ago, with beautiful miniatures. Precious the hall with depicted a hundred bishops of Padua. There are many paintings, including some valuable ones. There is also a very fine reliquary. Absolutely to visit. Cumulative ticket with the neighbor with the paintings of Jacopo da Menabuoi.
