  • We visited the Museum, in truth not widely known even among us Padovani, taking advantage of a special offer on Grupon. The Museum is located next to the Cathedral inside the Palace which already alone is well worth the visit. The frescoes and the paintings are generally excellent, some of the best known masters of the 17th and 18th century. Interesting also the vestments on display. Has its own uniqueness, even the "Hall of bishops" where are depicted in wonderful frescoes the first 100 bishops of Padova. To visit, deserves.

  • Excellent museum of medieval sacred arts.
  • Well worth a visit! Business card 8 euros which includes the baptistery, a veritable jewel completely painted by Giusto de Menabuoi in 1376. Imposing Archbishop's Palace Hall, frescoed and with medieval works inside.
