Museum of the Treasure of Sant'Eulalia

The museum shows the history of the Parish of St. Eulalia, one of the most traditional in Cagliari and in Marina district , where it is located.

In its exhibition halls houses a wide collection of wooden paintings, silverware , vestments and a historical archive.

Among the paintings we report the "Ecce Homo" ( double-sided oil on canvas ), depicting Jesus scourged, attributed to John Bilevelt , a painter of Flemish origin of the first half of the 17th century. Remarkable, also , the Madonna with Child, a 14th century table of Tuscan school.

Among the wooden works , as well as artifacts of 18th century Sardinian anonymous carvers and Neapolitan workshops , deserves to be mentioned "Our Lady of the Forsaken" ( last decades of the '500) .

The hall of silver gathers lamps, crosses, chalices , monstrance and ciborium commissioned by the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament , some in baroque style from Liguria and Piedmont , while others produced in Sardianian workshops .

Rare vestments, belonged to popes and archbishops, are shown in appostite display cases and cabinets. Donated by noble families and congregations , they are rich in symbolism and references to sacred history and coats of arms . Noteworthy is "The Planet of Passion" , date back to the middle of the '600 and attributable to some embroiders from Liguria, describing Jesus in two moments: in prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane and into the Praetorium .

The archive consists of the parish documentation and funds from the archconfraternities of Sacrament of the Holy Sepulchre and St. Lucia. It preserves scrolls, books , records and papers, dating from the first half of the 500 until the first decades of the 900 , which testify the work of churches and congregations in the religious , economic and social field, and their relations with the inhabitants of Marina district.
