Fascinating collection of majolica ceramics, a speciality of the region in the 17-19th centuries. Very helpful curator who gave us an interesting introduction and then, when we'd looked round, took us to the Museo dell'Olio (inclusive ticket) and showed us round that too.

This museum is a must to understand the legendary "Ceramiche di Castelli" history. For art and history lover's. Spend at least 45 minutes to really prepare a visit to Castelli (an hour drive from Loreto!).
