The Santa Giulia Museum
30 May 2016
The Santa Giulia Museum is most definitely the most important museum here in Brescia. One of a kind in both Italy and Europe for its exhibits and for the incredible environment in which it hosts them! The complex sits on the ancient decumano of the city Brixia and includes the Lombard Basilica of San Salvatore, which was constructed by King Desiderio in 753 A.C., the oratory of San Maria in Solario, the Choir of the nuns, and the 16th century church of Santa Giulia. Within the museum, you’ll discover thousands of objects and works from the Bronze Age to the 19th century, which pertain particulary to the city and province of Brescia. It’s an incredible way to get to know the city on a deeper level, discovering the masterpieces and symbols of the area.
As of June 25th, 2011, the monumental area of Santa Giulia- San Salvatore was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The heritage found here on site is among the most important remaining testaments to the Lombard culture at the height of their rule.
If you’re looking to discover the real history, character, and feel of the city, don’t miss the chance to visit this extraordinary museum!
