Museo Diocesano

Recommended
The Diocesan Museum and its valuable collections are housed opposite the cathedral in the Chiesa del Gesù (Church of Jesus), which has a superb carved ceiling dating from 1536. Fra Angelico is represented by two of his best works: an Annunciation, and a Madonna surrounded by saints, which is remarkable for the tenderness on Mary's face. A number of paintings from the Sienese School (Duccio, Pietro Lorenzeti, Sassetta) are also displayed, as is a collection of works by Luca Signorelli.
