3. The New Sacristy

The New Sacristy is a small room in which you will find vestments dating from the 17th to 20th centuries and other exquisite sacred objects such as chalices, pyxes, patens and monstrances. Of particular interest are the two ampoules in green glass and precious metal, which originally belonged to Pope Paul V, and a wood and mother-of-pearl reliquary cross. Furthermore, a number of reliquaries are displayed in the central cabinet, among which is a breathtaking silver bust of the Virgin containing the relics of her cloak. In the same display cabinet there is an interesting painting of the Flagellation of Christ dating from the early 18th century and the funeral mask of Saint Oliva, once found in the large reliquary in Room 2.

Going back on yourself and across the Chapter House, you will be facing the two sacristies.
