  • The museo del Tesoro del Duomo is located inside the Archbishop's Palace in the city of Vercelli. Within it there are several works that are part of the heritage of Cathedral of Saint Eusebius. There are fabrics, crucifixes, paintings, sculptures, chalices, reliquaries and upstairs you can see the room inhabited by Pope John Paul II during his visit to the city. Perhaps one of the greatest works is the Vercelli Book, a parchment manuscript written in England, which contains much of old English poetry. Inside the Palace, on previous reservation, you can visit the rich Pinacoteca Archbishop.

  • If you are in London, after visiting the basilica of Sant'Andrea, all you have to do is walk to the Cathedral, within walking distance to knock on a large wooden door to have deployed before your eyes some of the marvels of medieval art (and not only) vercellese. The Museum is small but extremely rich: the works that it preserves are of great value and very few museums can boast of possessing items of clothing books and suntuario so ancient and refined. Highlights for me remains: ligation of C code, the crucifix Ottonian (see also to Pavia!) and the reliquary Limousin. The Museum offers the opportunity to participate in educational workshops aimed particularly at children and school groups, as well as allows you to explore the rich collection of ancient codes for reasons of study or for simple curiosity. Finally, last but not least, you can take photos without having to do secretly like thieves! Indeed! The curator is happy if fairies and share online. I would absolutely recommend visiting it!

  • An amazing Museum, with few visitors as often happens in this Italy distracted. Grandiose pieces, like the silver crucifix of 11th century or the Codex Vercellensis IV, with the old Latin version of the Gospels, the "Itala" prior to the Vulgate tell Saint Jerome. Reception staff were courteous and considerate
