  • Presents the Baroque works carved in wood by the missionaries. Has Saints, Saints and angels and bells of that era. Free of charge. Little one. Got to San José in boots!

  • I really enjoyed the Museum. The works are very interesting. The only bad thing was the excessive heat inside the rooms. It is worth visiting.

  • Pretty cool, but with little explanation. Should have more info on the works that are, as the authors of works etc.
