Greve Museum of Sacred Art

There are a number of small museums of religious art scattered throughout Chianti. While not calling for a detour, these museums are well worth a visit when you are in the area. Usually, they house minor art works collected together from deconsecrated churches in the area plus more important works that cannot be displayed unprotected in the local cathedral or parish church.
