This building was once used as a hospital, dating back to the 13th century. It was originally built as a clinic for pilgrims. Located opposite the duomo, its most noteworthy feature is the Pellegrinaio or the Pilgrim's Hall, that is host to fascinating 15th-century frescoes by artistes like Lorenzo Vecchietta, Priamo della Quercia and Domenico di Bartolo depicting praises for the good works of the hospital and its patrons.
The building is now a cultural center and houses three very interesting museums – the Archaeological Museum, Art Museum for Children and Center of Contemporary Art (SMS Contemporanea) alongside a number of historic halls, chapels and exhibition spaces.
