  • Located in the convent of Santa Teresa, in the Central of the city. Its construction dates back to the 16th century. Mounted on the Bay of all saints, from their Windows to see if even the itaparica island. The interior of the temple, to ship only, with typical 17th century architecture, the confessionals were built on own edification to preserve the cloister of the priests. The Museum holds permanent exhibition of your collection, with pieces of the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19TH century part. The book "50 pieces of religious art museum of Bahia", Professor Valentin Calderon de La Vara, edited by agreement between the Federal University of Bahia and the Dow Química s.a., in 1981, records a part of this fantastic collection, one of the best in Brazil.

  • This is the best Museum of sacred art of Brazil. Was the initiative of the UFBA and Catholic curia along with Benedictines and culture, something that no longer exists here.

  • Very beautiful! If you like be sure to visit. Parts of the Museum are excellent. Very well maintained. All very clean and organized. Those responsible are to be congratulated. I hope that the work continues. In addition, the Museum has a wonderful view. It's very beautiful! I was admiring the parts of the Museum and the views of the Bay at the same time.
