Priest Anchieta Museum, Sao Paulo

4.0
#34 of 105 in Museums in Sao Paulo
A quick visit to Priest Anchieta Museum gives you an important history lesson about São Paulo and the catholicization of Brazil. The museum presents the life of Father José de Anchieta, a Spanish Jesuit priest who arrived in Brazil via Portugal in 1553. Father Anchieta was one of 12 priests responsible for founding Colégio de São Paulo de Piratininga, the Catholic educational institution from which São Paulo blossomed. Your visit to Priest Anchieta Museum starts at the crypt, where you can learn about the first mass to take place at the Colégio. In subsequent rooms, you'll see drawings illustrating the Colégio over the years and religious art. The building's walls are the original mud ones that formed the complex's study room. The site's location on the walking path between the Basilica of Saint Benedict and Praça da Sé makes it a convenient stop between these other two attractions. The museum's cafe provides a place to refresh yourself. Make Priest Anchieta Museum part of your personalized Sao Paulo itinerary using our Sao Paulo tour itinerary maker site .

  • Located at the Pateo Collegio, the Padre Anchieta Museum has a Rico collection composed of pieces of sacred art, in addition to rescue the memory and significance of place in the founding of São Paulo. You pay a small fee to access and visit is self guided. You can also visit the crypt, where a thoughtful guide welcomes visitors and narrates the entire trajectory of the place and of the Jesuits. Great Museum, worth a visit!

  • Great history lesson, old building and well taken care of, but the city could take better care of the environment, many beggars at the door sleeping on the floor and the location is smell bad, get away from the tourists.

  • Good place, I visited and liked it although it could have more things, a good would be a video room telling parts of the story. Don't let go in the crypt, there is the best part of the Museum, and a good explanation of the story by a guide.
