Tridentine Diocesan Museum

In the heart of Trento the artistic wealth of the Diocese, the treasure of the Cathedral and the Torre di Piazza

Next to San Vigilio Cathedral is the Praetorian Palace, residence of the first Prince-Bishops of Trento, housing since 1903 the artistic wealth of the diocese.

A new room contains findings from the excavations on the Early Christian basilica of San Vigilio carried out in 1964-77, with a multimedia station reconstructing in 3D the main building phases of the Cathedral. The Museum is also in charge of the School of Christian art and archaeology of the Theological Seminary.

The treasure of the Cathedral, with the outstanding large processional urn of San Vigilio, is a magnificent collection of objects from the 12th to the 18th century. Reliquaries, sacred vessels, painted ivory caskets of Islamic make, Gothic and Renaissance masterpieces, as well as baroque and 18th century ones crafted by Augsburg, Cologne and local masters.

At the Museo Diocesano Tridentino you can buy tickets to visit the Torre di Piazza, one of the symbols of the city of Trento, only accessible on guided tours.
