Museums and attractions Religious sites Indoor Outdoor

The Jerusalem Chapel is the private chapel of the Adornes family, an Italian merchant family from Genoa. The chapel was consecrated in 1429 and was inspired by the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. The architecture, layout and extraordinary relics provide an exceptional illustration of the great reverence of the Adornes family for Jerusalem. The tomb, the wonderful stained glass and the relic of the Holy Cross are unique. The private chapel is still used by the family for religious events, but now and again it is also used for classical concerts and lectures on heritage and art. The chapel can be accessed from the entrance in the Adornes Estate.
