The Museo del Tesoro has a fine collection of treasures that were collected by the local Catholic church. These include medieval metal work as well as ecclesiastical robes and art for churches. The metalwork is priceless. Check out the church next door. If you are lucky, you will find the organist practicing. It's gorgeous.
