  • Just at the Duomo you will find Palazzo Vescovile where the museum is. There are many artifacts and one is more beautiful than the other. The palace with its decoration is outstanding as well.  more »
  • Right next to the cathedral is the Bishop's museum in front of Piazza Duomo. A lot of jewellery and works of art are on display. In particular, the frescoes in the saloon are well preserved and the colors are overwhelming.

  • 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.
