Museo dell’Opera

Following an iternerary around the complex structure of the Cathedral you will find yourself on the right aisle of the Duomo Nuovo, where the Museo dell’Opera (The Cathedral Museum) is found. It is one of Italy’s oldest private museums and was founded in 1869 with a collection of art work from the Cathedral, anthem books, furnishings and other pieces collected over the centuries. The ground floor hosts a collection of 14th century sculptures that were once part of the cathedral’s façade. Here you can see a grand stained-glass window that was part of the cathedral’s apse and in another hall the magnificent altarpiece by Duccio di Buoninsegna. Those are just a few of the features in the museum that continues with incredible pieces and art from the Duomo’s history.

Panorama and Duomo Nuovo

With a climb up one of Siena’s greatest structures you will be rewarded with a breathtaking panorama with a great view on the whole city. The Duomo Nuovo is the structure that was built in the 14th century as an extension of the previously existing cathedral. The existing church was to become a transept of the new Cathedral and the structure became the Gothic building as we see it today with the grand façade, work of Giovanni d’Agostino. The right side of the Duomo Nuovo today hosts the Cathedral museum.
