Museo Della Cattedrale Reviews & Ratings
Not the most popular place to visit Ferrara but have a look if you have some spare time
Small collection but quite beautiful and well worth the visit.
beautiful place and landmark
Nella prima sala si trova un'interessantissima raccolta di libri antichi finemente miniati, frutto del lavoro certosino degli amanuensi. Bellissimi i reperti di sculture e bassorilievi in marmo e pietra, in particolare i resti di un ambone dell' VIII secolo e il modello del campanile del duomo con i vari disegni progettuali. Pregevole la raccolta di reliquiari e paramenti sacri della piccola sala con soffitto a volte a crociera meravigliosamente dipinte. La terza sala custodisce le slendide ante dell'organo, il Ciclo dei Mesi, una serie di altorilievi che impersonano i mesi dell'anno e una serie di otto enormi arazzi con le vicende di San Giorgio e San Maurelio, patrono della città. Il pezzo forte rimane la Madonna della Melagrana di Jacopo della Quercia.
