  • Well located Museum annexed to the monastery of Frei Galvão, with good structure. The space is pretty big, is in a beautiful old mansion. Has many images and works in your most Baroque and very well preserved, has tabs that carry a lot of info on the site and any questions are very willing to help. Still has the distribution of famous pills of Friar Galvão. Annex to the building, has a small shop that sells breads and sweets made by the nuns of the monastery in seclusion. Worth knowing.

  • Is the collection of sacred statues and liturgical ornaments of the colonial past. The place is nice and there's a beautiful garden, surrounding the convent. Good selection of cultural books. Visitors can also buy bread and biscuits made in the community.
  • Impressive museum with some unusual artefacts
  • Muito bonito
  • It was better than I could have imagined a wide and varied collection of art from different Brazilian churches. It has a very nice interior courtyard with a fountain in the middle. The museum itself is an old church that houses many relics worthy of knowing.
