Buriano Sacred Art Museum

Buriano Sacred Art Museum

Buriano’s Sacred Art Exhibition Hall, inaugurated in 2017, features works of sacred art
belonging to the churches of Buriano parish, some eighteenth-century ex-voto paintings
recalling the miracles of St. Guglielmo, patron saint of this town and of Beata Libertesca. A
Saint Guglielmo’s bone is kept here, placed inside a reliquary in the shape of a very precious
arm, which is dated back to the XVIII century.

Interesting objects of sacred jewellery and an eighteenth-century painting depicting the
Eucharist are also preserved here. Some sacred cloth vestments are part of the collection,
among which there is a damask silk cope of the XVII century, and a series of valuable
sacred volumes, silver furnishings that are part of the sacred furnishings of the parish church of the village.

Not far away there is the Rocca fortress, in its oldest parts dating back to the 12th century, situated on a strategically positioned hill. Nowadays it appears as impressive ruins made of limestone. The architectural structure was originally a polygonal complex with a fortified enclosure and internal courtyard, organized on at least two floors.
