Priest Anchieta Museum, Sao Paulo

(3.4/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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.

  • Located inside the courtyard of the school, has a good collection. You can schedule a tour for groups from 10 people.

  • Yes, the Museum is good, it is interesting, however I found the disproportionate price for recovery, there was no monitoring (they didn't inform me). But other than that, he is good, has a collection that tells the story of the arrival of the Jesuits in SP, then very important documents. Has interesting objects of the Catholic Church, objects of at least a century. Worth checking out.
