All the paintings in the Museum and in the Cathedral are an exemplary reminder of the development of the art of painting in the Terra di Otranto.
The first floor holds paintings portraying the Virgin Mary, Saints or scenes from the Christian life; on the second floor instead are kept several portraits of the Bishops of the Diocese of Gallipoli, some of which were painted after their death. All these painting are an important representation of the history of the Diocese.
