Museo del Bigorio

The objects collected in this museum all have a Capuchin origin and are closely linked to the life of the monastery, founded in 1535. They concern both the daily life of the friars and religious practice. Among the former are objects related to traditional Capuchin activities: horticulture, dressmaking, cellar and kitchen care, weaving, weaving, woodwork, distillery and pharmacopoeia. There are also moulds for making wafers and collection boxes. Objects related to religious and liturgical activity include sacred fabrics, penitential instruments, chalices, monstrances and reliquaries. The library and picture gallery in the church are interesting, as are the altar inlays and wooden candelabra.

  • Visits by appointment.
