The San Giusto Museum of Sacred Art is located in Suvereto, housed in the oratory for the Confraternity of the Misericordia, adjacent to the Romanesque Parish Church of San Giusto, which was mentioned as early as the 10th century. The display includes liturgical furnishings, vestments and sacred artworks lie paintings and sculptures.

The pieces in the collection come primarily from the nearby Church of San Giusto and the local patrimony. The most important artworks include two wooden statues by Lorenzo di Pietro, known as Il Vecchietta. These depict the Annunciating Angel and a Virgin Mary. Another priceless sculpture is by the 15th-century artist Andrea Guardi portraying the Madonna of the Fonte degli Angeli.

There are also various vestments and sacred furnishings, like chalices, candelabras, liturgical books, chasubles and reliquaries. In the exhibition hall, visitors can also view canvas paintings from the 16th and 18th centuries as well as an apse decorated with a wooden choir.
