Lonely Planet review
Encased in the crypt of Santo Sudario church, this fascinating museum documents one of the most studied objects in human history: the Holy Shroud. Whatever your position on the shroud's authenticity, its story unfolds like a gripping suspense mystery, with countless plots, subplots and revelations.
Of particular interest is the story of the shroud post-1898, when camera technology allowed people to see much clearer photographic negatives of the cloth for the first time.
