São Paulo Museum of Sacred Art (Museu de Arte Sacra)
Based in the grand 18th-century Luz Monastery, the Sacred Art Museum of São Paulo (Museu de Arte Sacra de São Paulo) is dedicated to ecclesiastical Brazilian works from the 17th to 20th centuries. 

The collection was started by the first archbishop of São Paulo, Dom Duarte Leopoldo e Silva, who gathered important sacred art from the chapels that were being demolished after the introduction of the Republic, though the museum itself didn't open until 1970. 

On a visit, look out for works by the renowned 18th-century sculptor Antônio Aleijadinho ,and visit the jewel room to see solid gold and silver artifacts. A newer addition to the exhibits on show is the section dedicated to nativity art — head to the annex to see the impressive Neapolitan manger scene.
