The Museum of Sacred Art in Certaldo

The collection comprises sacred artworks from the surrounding area

Certaldo
The museum is located in the historic centre of Certaldo Alto, near the Palazzo Pretorio, the House of Boccaccio and the Saint Jacopo and Filippo Church, which dates back to the 12th century. The church—which houses the tomb of Beata Giulia, the patron saint of Certaldo, and the tomb of Boccaccio—was an Augustine convent in the early 1400s until 1783.

The pinacoteca, or the main gallery, is one of the many sacred museums in the Florentine area. Its aim is that of gathering the religious and sacred artworks that were located throughout the area in an effort to safeguard and better conserve them. These are works that can no longer remain on display in their original locations, and that have been gathered in this museum in order to be viewed by the public at large. The pinacoteca is located in one of the area’s most important religious places.
