The Cathedral Museum of San Lorenzo, also known as the Cathedral Museum, is located in Perugia in the historic center. The Museum was founded in 1923 and develops in 25 rooms that house the works coming from churches in the diocese and the Cathedral. At the entrance of the museum it is located on the archaeological site of the Cathedral where originally stood the Etruscan acropolis. Even today you can see the layers of different ages: Etruscan, Roman, late ancient and medieval. In particular, there are the foundations of a temple, an Etruscan road - Roman and a Roman domus. The museum collection preserves illuminated manuscripts, liturgical vestments, jewelery, silverware, paintings and sculptures from the years 1000 to 1800. Among the most important artists include: Meo da Siena, Arnolfo di Cambio, Pompeo Cocchi, Bartolomeo Caporali, Agostino di Duccio and Luca Signorelli with his "sant'onofrio altarpiece", the only artist in this city of Perugia.
