    Here you can admire masterpieces of Italian painting of inestimable value, of all the Annunciation by Beato Angelico at the Museum which is derived from the ancient Church of Jesus '. The ticket price of only 5 euro is an invitation to visit an interesting Museum.

    The Museo Diocesano is small but very very fine. It is unbelievable that a museum of this nature and magnitude such spectacular art in its ports. And that for a very small admission fee!

  • Beautiful museum in the Duomo of Cortona. It has many Etruscan artefacts and is very peaceful. Highly recommended.
  • Right outside the entrance of the Diocesan Museum of the Cathedral Chapter, which houses all the major works owned by the Church of Cortona. Upon entering you will come across the famous sarcophagus with battle between Dionysus and the Amazons, who counts among his admirers also Donatello and Michelangelo. Continuing the visit we find the cross, Madonna enthroned with angels and a crucifix shaped, Pietro Lorenzetti, the triptych Madonna of humility and St Nicholas, Michael, Giovanni Battista and Margherita da Cortona of Sassetta, the Annunciation by Beato Angelico, work more important than the whole collection. Then there is the Assumption by Bartolomeo della Gatta, the Lamentation over the dead Christ and the Fellowship of Angels by Luca Signorelli: apart from other paintings and frescoes, the Museum also possesses a remarkable collection of jewellery and utensils, including the Goblet of Michele Tome ' of 1370, the reliquary Vagnucci, work of the Florentine Goldsmith's 400, and parried Pal Gold laminate velvet and Brocade, executed from designs by Raffaellino del Garbo and Andrea del Sarto.

  • At first I was skeptical and thought I find few works of genuine artistic interest. The Museum features salt divided by historical periods. Of course not to be missed is the Annunciation by Beato Angelico, but also interesting is the Chapter House. Appropriate to the size and entrance fee to the offer of the Museum

  • Small but extremely interesting Museum with works ranging from Roman times to the present day. Gorgeous is the Annunciation by Beato Angelico and remarkable are the works by Luca Signorelli, native of Cortona, especially the Lamentation over the dead Christ, where it seems that in Christ I wanted to depict the son died prematurely.

  • The Announciation of Fra Angelico alone is worth the price of admission (3 euro). Very nice also the it support for the visit.
