The museum is located beneath the temple, and is divided into two parts, one dedicated to religious art and the other to local ethnography.
In the section dedicated to religious art, a magnificent 15th-century altarpiece stands out, measuring 3.8 metres by 2.6. The central panel features Anthony the Great and, at his sides, Saint Peter and Saint Paul. The Holy Christ of the Piety, the Virgin Mary, Saint John, James, son of Zebedee, and John the Baptist are at its base. The upper panel is dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary. It is attributed to the artist called ‘Maestro del Milagro de Colonia’.
The museum also holds valuable pieces of gold and silver artwork. A brief description of these objects is provided below:
- According to the parish priest Mosén Millán, the polychrome wooden statues of Saint Peter of Verona, and a decorative angel, are early Baroque pieces. They therefore appear to be older than the current temple.
- According to the aforementioned academic, there is a 15th-century Florentine alabaster engraving that looks to have been multi-coloured. It portrays the Madonna and Child.
As well as chrismatories, reliquaries, plates and crosses, there are many other objects of incalculable value.
The museum’s ethnography section features a whole series of farming and other crafting tools, as well as furniture and home utensils.
