Santa Filippa Mareri's museum

Inside the convent, that Santa Filippa had founded and supervised personally, there was not only spiritual activity; nuns used to work, made the charity service and the apostolate.
In the convent, cloistered nuns used to prepare medicines and distributed them freely to the sick through small doors made of iron gratings.
In fact, with her life style according to San Francesco’s lifestyle, Santa Filippa lived by the Gospel in a world that had forgotten it.
The Museum offers a glimpse of monastic life from different ages with the exhibition of decorative artefacts, furnishings, crafts, objects from daily religious life of the time, recipe books and pharmacy tools.
