Caorle Cathedral Liturgical Museum

The St Stephen’s Cathedral Museum in Caorle is managed by the St Apollonia Association on behalf of the parish. Founded in 1975 in the former private chapel of the bishops, the museum houses a rich collection of objects related to worship and devotion, including chalices, reliquaries, crosses and liturgical vestments, as well as the famous six 14th-century icons.

Summer opening hours:
– Saturday: 8 p.m. – 10 p.m.
– Sunday: 10 a.m.-12 p.m. / 8 p.m.-2 p.m.

The museum’s Archaeological Hall displays a large selection of Roman, Byzantine and medieval exhibits. Among the exhibits are terracotta vases, amphorae, ceramic objects, foundation bricks and Byzantine swords, as well as medieval crucibles and household utensils.

In the Ethnological Room, the history of Caorle from the Middle Ages onwards is narrated. Among the exhibits are historical documents, photographs, fishing and hunting objects, as well as a reconstruction of typical environments of rural Caorle life.

The museum bears witness to the history of the city from the 3rd century B.C. to the 17th century A.D., offering a fascinating insight into local life and traditions.
