Based in the grand 18th-century Luz Monastery, the São Paulo Museum of Sacred Art (Museu de Arte Sacra) 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.

Breakfast Tour in Bom Retiro

star-5
4
Bom Retiro literally means "good place to rest" and this might be a great place for it until 200 years ago! The success of coffee production and the construction of the São Paulo Railway Company in 1847 strongly changed this area. Also, southern European migration which firstly interested this area, would be replaced by eastern European migration, mostly due to the 2 World Wars. Later on, other kind of migration would contribute to deeply changing this area. Bolivians, Koreans, and Brazilians from the North East are now the predominant inhabitants of this area. Together we will have a Breakfast in Bom Retiro, experiencing Korean pastry, tasting delicacies from the Balkans and drinking Colombian Coffee.
