Specialty Museum
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. Put Priest Anchieta Museum on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Sao Paulo tourist route planner.

  • Note 10000000 is the best Museum sacro of Sampa. Hard to explain in a few words. For starters we got the floor with their ancient Sao Paulo maps, streets, the story for years told in drawings, the Foundation and changes of the pateo, in addition to the miniature city antiquerrima made of clay (I forgot to ask but I think it was made of clay). Not to mention the very well-kept garden. 2 floor pieces dating from the 16TH, 17th and 18th century. Pieces such as garments of José de anchietta of the 16th century, clothing of Pius X or the beautiful ostensórios. And to complete and improve even more, the ride the underground crypt. Walls kept the 17th century. There plus other amazing pieces, drawings of all the churches that made up the greater São Paulo. I saw on the website that there are other spaces but it wasn't us. What I liked most is that the guides are exceptional. Know everything, speak with property. You ask and he responds in time and makes you more and more appetizing for information. Need I say more? Ticket is real 8 (March 2017) I didn't see any info on any day for free. Massssss being the padre anchieta Museum could be real, I'd pay 30. #ficaadica

  • 8 reais to enter, which is interesting, has works of art and relics, but to get the most out of this attraction I suggest learn to time the crypt opens, I think around 2:00 pm. To visit the crypt is monitored and is included in the value.

  • Museum of sacred art but without any monitoring, you buy the ticket, adult R$ 8.00, student of private school and public school R$ 4.00 2.00 R$. Seniors don't pay. The Museum has several sacred pieces and religious relics, interesting including padre Anchieta's cover of more than 500 years. It is worth visiting.

  • 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.
