Museu da Misericórdia, Salvador

(4.3/5 based on 340 reviews on the web)
Once among the first hospitals in the country, Museu da Misericórdia now houses religious artwork of inestimable value. Stop by to take a guided tour of the museum’s rich collection of sacred art, some of which is hundreds of years old. There’s also a portraits gallery of prominent benefactors and an archive of the region’s notable family histories. This building is an important national landmark, and one of the first religious complexes in the country to follow the building model of church at the center and long side wings. Rich in detail, the site has seen multiple costly renovations over the years. Most notably, in 1704 the staircase and the loggia overlooking the city’s famous bay were covered with expensive Portuguese marble. Plan your visit to Museu da Misericórdia and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Salvador family vacation planner.

  • The Museum keeps alive the story of the colonization of Bahia, with her furniture, costumes and luxury. It also shows the evolution of the health system, when patients were prevented from having contact with the street to avoid the contagion.

  • Beautiful Museum, has a breathtaking view, and when you meet there given the location and preservation of pieces back in time! Very interesting! Too bad they don't let take photos, though I have seen pictures of other people.

  • Local tem uma boa estrutura mais no momento do encerramento do espetáculos as grandes que ficam ao redor do estádio representam verdadeiros gargalos no momento da saída, as vezes gerando um aglomeração desnecessária que pode causar um avidente.
  • Eu fiquei encantada, com a história e a arquitetura. A mulher que nos guiou foi muito atenciosa. Um dos melhores passeios que eu já fiz em Salvador.
