  • The Museum of sacred art of Pará is wonderful. The visit begins in the Church of St. Alexander, which is very beautiful, full of woodwork. Subsequently, we access the second floor where is installed the Museum. Are several rooms with very rich both in cultural value as historic. Returning to the reception is indicated another room where there is a collection of the legendary thrush and an itinerant exhibition room which opens onto the inner garden of the building. Anyway, for me, one of the most beautiful sacred museums I've visited. Worth knowing.
