  • Not the most popular place to visit Ferrara but have a look if you have some spare time
  • Small collection but quite beautiful and well worth the visit.
  • Free museum
  • beautiful place and landmark
  • Simply gorgeous, there are no other adjectives to describe this exposition, from the location (former church of San Romano) to the exhibits. Already from the entrance, through a wonderful cloister, the visitor is transported to another atmosphere, full of mysteries and history. The exhibition then is divided into 3 sections, each of which hosts different masterpieces, of different genres and eras, but that blend well together for an excellent result. Impossible to describe them all, just to name a few, inside are exhibited the beautiful sacred books decorated by the Amanuensi, numerous bas-reliefs of sacred images from the old façade of the cathedral, relics of St. George and St. Maurelio ( Protectors of the city) the splendid "cycle of the months", the enormous tapestries representing sacred scenes, which served to decorate the Cathedral for the solemn feasts, the decorations of the doors of the old organ by Cosmé Tura, several sacred paintings. But The real masterpiece is found in the apse of the former Church, in the last room, and it is the sculpture of Jacopo della Quercia the "Madonna of the Pomegranate", a real spectacle. Everything in a clean, well-lit and with explanatory plates that accompany the visitor throughout his journey. Absolutely Recommended!
