The Museum of the Church of Saint Dominic

According to legend, the ancient Temple of the Dominican Friars in Cingoli was founded by San Domenico himself at the beginning of the 13th century “a little before his death”, in 1221. Since the building has been restored and rebuilt many times over the course of time, today there are only a few traces of the original structure of the 13th century, presumably in Romanesque style and plain in form.
