  • Museum of sacred art with pieces mostly dating from the 17th and 18th centuries that deserved greater attention from tourists visiting the Historic Centre of Embu das Artes. You should have a folder or magazine with the story of the building. The pieces are arranged with didactic function with the tour you can learn how the carved pieces. Worth a visit.
