Treasures

Numerous jewels form the treasure of Mantua: precious objects of worship, golden illuminated manuscripts, beautiful finely wrought Gothic armour, ceramics from Limoges, golden caskets decorated in precious stones, fascinating clocks, and the "Toson d'oro" given as a gift to Vespasiano Gonzaga by the Spanish court.
There is also the relic of the blood of Christ which has great devotional and historical significance and can be found in the Sacred Vases in the crypt of Sant'Andrea.
