  • The Romanesque cloister is a masterpiece of medieval European art, like the adjacent church of St. Sofia. Beautiful, especially, i recall one in particular figured capitals carved with a scene of chivalry. Also very interesting, although mostly not of so great importance, the artworks in the Museo del Sannio, especially the exhibits of archaeology, both ancient and medieval, occupying, in fact, most of the exhibition space. The Council, however, to give a look (maybe soon) at Benevento contemporary artists works. Clear and looked after the preparation, with explanations in General.

  • Must see small yet packs 2000 years of history of this town that was the capital of samnium, Roman, Lombard and Papal States. You will find a section with Greek, Romans, Lombards and then modern art with works by Palladino and others. Let us not forget then ISIS. The location and only and only the Church and the cloister Is the ticket

  • Great museum in a tiny Italian City
  • Great Museum, though not very well known. Has many interesting artifacts from different historical periods of the city of Benevento and not. I highly recommend you check them out

  • Archaeological evidence and the local beneventan art from Neolithic to modern times. The multimedia part is the lighting should be remade, but worth every second of your visit. Surprising richness and continuity of a city at the center of the story, testimonials from businesses with the Greek world in age Osca and Samnite, flourishing in Roman times, the darkness of the twilight of the Empire and the Greek-Gothic war and the slow revival in the Lombard period, with new forms that do not reach the height of the Empire.

  • Monuments, works of art and artifacts, however well documented, that tell the story of a region of enormous interest of antiquity, from the Neolithic to Roman times, until the end of the middle ages, and its transformation to the present day.

  • Beautiful statues and some affected. Sin iron structures and inadequate lighting system.
