  • The collegiate church is an interesting destination in itself, like the town of Chiavenna in General, but this Museum, and "peace" in particular deserve all the kilometres that we are from home! The Museum is small but very well organized and there is a chance to enrich your visit with watching some movies very well made that describe the treasures. The entrance fee is a few euros, for young people and those over 60 even symbolic. We were four and were greeted by a "guardian" very helpful and friendly, but above all educated and prepared, which, being at that time the only visitors, has put at our disposal.

  • few people know that one of the absolute masterpieces of medieval art, the so-called "peace" of Chiavenna, an 11th-century Gospels in gold, enamel and precious stones, is kept in this small museum. That would be enough to spend some time, especially that the understanding of the work is facilitated by a beautiful and interesting video-then there are medieval objects and beautiful fabrics, protected by the best storefronts and bulletin boards available today (Goppion)-perfect lighting, pleasant driving. Don't miss the 1156 century baptismal font, carved in soapstone and rare for the presence of sacred and profane pads

  • I visited the Museum of curiosity. I was really impressed how x was interesting ... I was fortunate to have the guide who was explaining to me piece by piece and that was very enjoyable.

The artifact is a mere renana or milanese, dating back to the 11th or 12th century. If you have time to see ...
