Museo Nazionale d'Abruzzo

Via Ottavio Colecchi, L'Aquila

Set inside the Spanish fortress, at present under restoration, the museum collects a few of the most noteworthy artistic expressions of the region, such as a processional cross by Nicola from Guardiagrele, wooden sculptures by Silvestro from L'Aquila, Beffi's triptych and canvases by Francesco from Montereale and Giulio Cesare Badeschini. Among the most noticeable pieces on display there are finds from the near-by archaeological site of Amiternum and pre-historic finds, especially the extraordinary fossil of Archidikodon Meridionalis Vestinus, a species widespread in the Pleistocene.
