  • Gives satisfaction of Patriot, see a few treasures collected in this Museum, and also ordered and arranged. No to go to Peru to see art of this style, we have it in our country and at a cost of $6,000 ($2 usd). Thanks to the Archbishop who organized it and donated all her jewels collected over many years. Congratulations

  • Excellent paintings and works that illustrate the conception of religion, the development of the city and the country throughout history. The relics, beautiful jewelry, only exposed during Holy week.

  • A House from the 18th century with shiny floors, fresh air and quiet energy houses the Archdiocesan Museum of religious art of Popayán. They are displayed sculptures, oil paintings, jewelry, carvings, ornaments, furniture, engravings, works in general beautiful from the 16th to the 20th century, with a representative sample of oil paintings. Each room is spectacular, with guides that make the visit a unique experience. You can see spectacular works representing San Antonio de Padua, the doctors of the Church or unimaginable woodcarving of the immaculate conception of the Apocalypse.

  • Quite a bit of really great colonial religious art here. If you are into religious art or Latin American colonial history, then I really recommend you visit this place. The price included a guided tour for me but I'm not sure if this is always the case or if I got lucky as I was the only person there!
  • A special dedicated to the history and memory of the painting and Quito colonial architecture, which reflected the historical and religious history of the city of Popayán in the colonial era.
