Museums - Libraries and Cultural Highlights in the Province of Vibo Valentia

There are two museums to visit: the Diocesan Museum of Clerical Art and the Archeological Museum that embraces both the Roman and the Greek era. Discover findings that date back to the Paleolitical period and admire art from the Renaissance. 

The Archeological Museum of Nicotera

Via Castello (tel 0963.82175)

The Diocesan Museum of Clerical Art

P.zza Duomo, 10 - Tel. 0963/81308
Entrance hours: Monday-Friday 9.30/10.30 - 16.30/19.30 (June & September)
At request also other months
Entrance fee: free
Responsible: Mr. Natale Pagano

The museum consists in a number of rooms where you can admire the most precious local handicraft and its development through the centuries.
 
The museum is divided into 6 sections: marbles, clerical vestments, silver, sculptures, furniture, manuscripts and rare books.
Specially worthwhile is the Crucifix of Colella di Jacopo, from the XVth Century, that shows traces of the Donatellian school. This is an anatomically perfect piece of art, among the most important ones from the Southern Italian school of the XVth Century.
