  • Excellent museum of medieval sacred arts.
  • In questo museo ci sono alcuni libri, di quelli stampati mezzo millennio fa, con delle miniature bellissime. Preziosa la sala con raffigurati cento vescovi di Padova. Ci sono molti quadri, tra cui alcuni preziosi. Si trova anche un reliquiario molto fine. Assolutamente da visitare. Biglietto cumulativo con il vicino battistero con le pitture di Jacopo da Menabuoi.
