  • For those visiting St. Lawrence Cathedral, Genoa is also a keen tip to pay a visit to the Treasure Museum. It is accessed from the last door of the left aisle, paying a ticket of 6 euros. It is located in some subsoil environments of great architectural quality and rarefied atmosphere, the work of the architect Franco Albini, and you can admire fascinating works of goldsmithing and antique silverware, of excellent artistic craftsmanship. The most intriguing work is surely the Holy Catino, long considered the Holy Grail, in sour green, where it seems that Jesus ate his last supper; very interesting the Cross of the Zacharias, byzantine work and objects related to the cults of St. John the Baptist, patron of the city, such as the precious Calcedonio Plate, the small arch-reliquary called the Barbarossa and the largest, fifteenth century, finely istoriated and worked that is used in the procession of June 24, the feast of St. John. There are also some monumental silver works five and sixteenth century, also very interesting.

  • It's a small collection, but a few amazing items. It includes what was claimed for a long time to be the holy chalice ("holy grail"), a shallow green dish. Enter through the cathedral on the left side. We went at opening and it was empty other than us, which was a nice change from crowded museums.
  • Great place for history buffs
