Cassino. Abbey museum

The Abbey museum in Cassino traces the history of the abbey, from medieval art to Baroque reconstruction, up to the archaeological finds of the twentieth century.

Among the most famous works is the Nativity by Botticelli, one of the most famous artists of the Renaissance.

The medieval section includes the cloister, with the well and the staircase, symbolic images of the Abbey, and the Chapel of St. Anna with its precious paintings.

The Abbey archive, open to scholars and researchers, contains documents from the entire history of southern Lazio starting from the Middle Ages. Also here you can find prints and engravings, choirs, books of hours, incunabula and sixteenth century.

It continues with the section dedicated to sacred vestments, ecclesiastical furnishings and ivories, donated to the abbey over the centuries.

The exhibition itinerary ends with an exhibition dedicated to the Battle of Montecassino and the reconstruction.
