Museu de Arte Sacra Review

Housed in a former Carmelite monastery, the museum and the adjoining Igreja de Santa Teresa (St. Theresa Church) are among the best in Salvador. An in-house restoration team has worked miracles that bring alive Salvador's golden age as Brazil's capital and main port, told through thoughtfully cared-for collections of religious objects. See the silver altar in the church, recovered from the fire that razed the original Igreja da Sé in 1933, and the blue-and-yellow-tile sacristy replete with a bay view. Access is recommended via Rua Santa Thereza, and there is a taxi point located nearby.
