MIK Museum im Kapitel

In front of the majestic Dolomites, there is the Romanesque Collegiate Church of San Candido with its Collegiate Museum

The monastery in San Candido is known as the oldest and the most remarkable Romanesque sacred building in Tyrol, dating back to the 8th century AD. Founded by Tassilo III, Duke of Bavaria, as support point for the evangelization of Slavs, it was transformed into a Collegiate Foundation in the 12th century. The Saints Candidus and Corbinian San Candido Collegiate Church has not changed its present-day appearance from 1280. Until 2023, when the Collegiate Museum was renamed in MIK Museum im Kapitel, it had two locations: the Franciscan monastery and the Chapter House "Granary" from the 16th century. It is located in the Via Atto road, near the Collegiate Church and the hospital. Its exterior has remained unmodified for centuries.

Still today decorative elements of 1550 are recognizable, painted by scholars of the Bressanone School. Beside the archive and the library of the convent, this highly remarkable building also hosts seven exhibition rooms where you can admire a collection of manuscripts, the Cathedral Treasure and a comprehensive art collection with sacred works, in great parts realized by local artists, commissioned either by the convent itself, or by citizens of San Candido.

The second location in the Franciscan monastery was closed in 2023. And how to reach the MIK Museum im Kapitel? It is located in the Via Atto road in San Candido village - there are several parking spaces near the church and the adjacent town hall. The bus stops in front of the hospital.
