The Museum of Guardiagrele Duomo is located in the old city of Abruzzo province of Chieti. The Cathedral Museum was opened in 1987 and housed in the collegiate church of Santa Maria Maggiore, the cathedral of the city. The Museum was founded on the will of the parish priest Don Domenico Grossi in order to preserve, promote and make accessible the heritage of the diocese. Much of the wealth was stolen during the Napoleonic requisitions, so the exposed collection is very low. The works are preserved including from the fifteenth to the eighteenth century. Among the most important works are: the liturgical vestments in brocade, statues of saints and wooden reliquaries. Of great value are the fragments of silver cross by Nicola da Guardiagrele in 1431 and a casket and a reliquary wooden cross, both of the fourteenth century. The Museum is open to the public and you can take guided tours.
