Museu de Arte Sacra de Pernambuco

One of those small, unheralded museums that are easy to miss, the Museu de Arte Sacra de Pernambuco, or sacred art museum, is a wonderful little find. On two floors of a former bishop’s house that sits across from the town observatory and plaza where street musicians play, the museum is filled with old church paintings, elaborate reliquaries and santos de roca, small statues designed for religious processions.
