Only a stone’s throw from the world-famous St. Proculus Church there is the Proculus Museum, which was inaugurated in 2006.
The Proculus Museum - "Prokulus Museum" in German, "Museo San Procolo" in Italian - is allocated subterraneously and takes you into 1,500 years of history of the area around Naturno. Four interesting time-space showrooms take you across late antiquity, Middle Ages and early modern times. Furthermore there are short film sequences and archaeological finds.
One part of the exhibition is dedicated to the time of spotted fever: In the 17th century, this infection, which is mainly transmitted by clothes lice, plagued the area and devastated entire regions. The symptoms are similar to those of typhus. Therefore the bones of people who died of the disease and found their last resting place in the area were examined.
One of museum's main focus is also set on on the nearby St. Proculus Church with its valuable wall paintings. Here you can admire the Gothic frescoes which have been taken down from the church walls. And how to reach the museum? Between the two facilities in the Via San Procolo road there's a parking space. From the centre, they are also accessible in a just a few minutes.
