The museum is located in the south hall of the cathedral and keeps several hundred exhibits, including some really marvelous examples. It is worth the admission fee.

An exceptional collection of religious art, a real treasure. The jewels and offerings are masterpieces of goldsmith.

The museum is full of fantastic gold, silver and bronze pieces, which date back from the 11th century. With the Audioguide everything becomes a bit more interresting and clearer (takes about 20min). The golden Manta is a priceless piece that just enchants you with its...More
