The Diocesan Museum of Santa Maria, created in 1964, studies and exhibits the history of the church in Ibiza and Formentera from the 13th century to the 20th century. It is accessed from the interior of the Cathedral of Santa Maria and occupies the sacristy and the chapterhouse. The museum contains some exceptional works of religious art such as sculptures, altarpieces, ornaments and a delicate collection of traditional Ibizan precious metal work and jewellery, with rosaries and crosses for officiating the liturgy since the Christian conquest. Some items that stand out from the pieces are an engraved white marble stone from 1538, a 13th-century baptismal font, a collection of oil paintings from the 14th and 15th centuries – by painters like Mateu López Sènior, Francesc Comes or Valentí de Montoliu— and books from the Diocesan Archive, featuring a 1604 Bible or the Caeremoniale Episcoporum from 1600.
