The Museum of Sacred Art houses one of the most representative collections of the Brazilian religious heritage. It was Dom Duarte Leopoldo, first archbishop of São Paulo, which gathered and organized the works that gave rise to the museum.
The relics of Baroque art, dating from the sixteenth century to the present day, are religious silverware and jewelery, painting, furniture, altarpieces, altars, sacred vestments and rare liturgical books. The lamps collection is only less than that of the Vatican Museums and there is also a rich collection of Russian icons. The Museum of Nativity Scenes is an attraction in itself.
