Borgia Palace Diocesan Museum was inaugurated in 1998 in the new restored location of Palazzo Vescovile and replaced the venerable Museo della Cattedrale, hosted from 1901 in the Canonical Palace “Palazzo dei Canonici”.

The massive building overlooking Piazza Pio II, in front of Palazzo Piccolomini, and Corso Rossellino, incorporates the structures of two different renaissance palaces: the residence of the famous cardinal Borgia, the future Pope Alexander VI, and the residence of the cardinal Jean Jouffroy of Arras.

The Museum now holds a valuable collection of works medieval and modern art that come from the Cathedral and the ancient Diocese of Pienza: organized in 11 halls according to an order and a criterion almost always chronological, you can admire not only paintings, triptychs and altarpieces but also goldsmith’s art, religious ornaments, tapestries and wooden sculptures.
