Bolzano Cathedral Treasury

The Cathedral Treasury exhibits one of the most extensive Baroque church furnishings and artworks in Tyrol.

Right next to the Assumption of Our Lady Cathedral in Bolzano, slightly hidden behind its southern walls, there’s the entrance to the Cathedral Treasury, a small museum with beautiful art treasures. It is located on the ground floor of the provostry, a building already mentioned in 1275 as parish residence. The collection presents on 220 sqm, spread over four rooms, nearly 100 selected objects, an interesting and splendid insight into the Roman Catholic liturgy. Wonderful liturgical robes, precious painted flags and exquisite goldsmith works of past centuries are on display.

Statues and monstrances by masters of Augsburg, which enjoyed a high reputation already in the Middle Ages and whose works were precious tradable goods also on the Bolzano Fairs, can be admired. In addition there are other important artworks by local goldsmiths, including Peter Ramoser, Abraham Anton Hussl and Johann Wild. Also the eventful history of the Bolzano Cathedral, from its construction around 1300 to the end of WWII, is told: At the time, the old town suffered severe damage under American bombing. The Bolzano Cathedral Treasury is managed by the “Freunde des Pfarrmuseums Bozen” (Friends of the Bolzano Parish Museum), an association founded especially for this purpose.
