Museums of San Domenico –

The San Domenico Museums are located in the renovated complex where a 13th century Dominican convent once stood. The complex consists of five buildings: Palazzo Pasquali, Church of St James the Apostle, Dominican Convent, Augustinian Convent and St Catherine's Hall. Inside is the refectory of the convent with 16th-century frescoes attributed to Girolamo Ugolini. On the north-east wall the fresco is divided into three parts divided by architectural elements with the Crucifixion in the centre, the apparition of Saints Peter and Paul to St Dominic on the left and St Dominic resurrecting the young Napoleone Orsini, who fell from his horse, on the right. The south-west wall depicts St Dominic's table with the miracle of the loaves. The complex also houses the Pinacoteca Civica di Forlì.
