The Kolumba museum was primarily a Gothic cathedral, the ruins of which are now incorporated within the museum. The best noticeable feature of the Kolumba museum is the unforced blend of art, architecture and of course heritage that comes together so well to make the Kolumba one of the most visited museums of the city. One of the oldest museums of the city, the Kolumba focuses on religious displays; it serves as a tribute to the Gothic, Roman and Medieval history, from Late Antiquity to the modern world.
