This classic museum is inside the Church on the right hand side. There is a small entrance fee. The calices
and other artifacts on display are well maintained. Some of them dating back a few centuries. Videos and photos are not permitted inside

Inside the Cathedral there is a small museum with about 400 pieces in 4 rooms (2 floors), some dating from the 10th century, the main piece of the museum is the "Manta d'oro" (Golden Mantle) which is the covering, in the Byzantine tradition, for the sacred image of the Madonna of the Letter on the high altar of the Cathedral (still used on the Saint’s feast day). Very interesting, worth visiting!

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 beauty!!

This is a must see museum for antique and relic connousseurs. Inside are collections of very valuable reliquary kept for safe keeping. Some of the items dates from the middle ages and are full of gold, silver, and priceless vestments and statuaries saved from the WW II bombing of Messina. Truly a wonderful and rich experience.

This is located inside the Duomo and has 2 floors and a toilette.
