The museum has a double function, as an archaeological site and a museum. The archaeological site conserves the remains of four churches (from the 8th to the 17th centuries) which were part of the Benedictine Monastery Saint Anastasio and the splendid Romanesque Crypt. The museum hosts the sandstone capitals of the second Romanesque Church of Saint Anastasio (beginning of 12th century). Capitals, shelves, sculptured conical arches (13th-15th Cent.) from the lost Gothic Church of the Maddalena, architectural elements and sculptures of the early and late Medieval periods (including the beautiful frontal of Saint Peter Consavia) corner stones and coats of arms of the family strong houses.
