The museum is in the church of the Monastery of the Bernadines, built at the beginning of the 18th century, and opens onto the chapels, choir of the nuns, and the sacristies of both the nuns and priests.
The works (sculptures, paintings, textiles, gold work)retrace the development of religious practice over the centuries. The display starts with their iconography and their symbolic meaning, to give meaning to these religious objects that also belong to the cultural heritage.
