Sant’Agata, San Sebastiano and Santa Cristina are the patron Saints of Gallipoli and their worship is strongly felt in the city.

The celebrations dedicated to the three Saints represent important moments of tradition and religiousness, that instill in those taking part in them a load of emotions, mysticism and folklore, for unforgettable memories to be made.

Several statues, paintings and reliquaries throughout the Museum are dedicated to the patron Saints.
