  • On the run and heat to meet Belém do Pará, we came across this wonderful place. An oasis. It was the most beautiful Museum of sacred art we've ever seen. It's worth it.

  • Visit the Museum of sacred art in Bethlehem is report the early Portuguese colonization in Pará and the arrival of the first religious orders. Start at the location, a former episcopal Palace and Church of St. Alexander, today transformed in Museum, whose architectural style is the baroque Jesuit, somewhat late, but of great beauty. In the Church, you can enjoy the wooden carved pulpits by Indians of the region, catechized in the order of the society of Jesus. Between the images, a dead jesus and carved wooden polychrome archangels. The numerous rooms, Saints, paintings and sacred pieces in gold and silver recovered by a special lighting that highlights and pop the eyes the wealth of details.
