The San Giusto Civic and Parochial Museum of Sacred Art is housed in the oratory of the Confraternità della Misericordia e del Sacramento which was built in 1881 and then renovated in 1988 in order to turn it into a museum. The oratory is next to the Romanesque church of San Giusto in the town of Suvereto. The first documented evidence of a church on this site dates back to the tenth century and the building itself dates back to 1188. The museum is home to works of art and religious items from the church of Suvereto and from other churches in the surrounding area. It’s a good idea to combine a visit to the museum with a tour of the church of the Madonna di Sopra la Porta, an eighteenth century building in which there is a wonderful painting of the Immaculate Conception. From here, it’s possible to go on to the sixteenth century Oratory del Crocifisso.
