NOTES: This museum, built on the ruins of Roman town houses, is located in the former female Benedictine monastery of San Salvatore-Giulia, founded in 753. It was acquired by Brescia town council in 1996 and converted into a museum by Giovanni Tortelli and Roberto Frassoni. It opened to the public in 2006. It comprises the Lombard church of San Salvatore and its crypt, the Romanesque church of Santa Maria in Solario, the Nuns' Choir, the sixteenth-century church of Santa Giulia and three Renaissance cloisters.
