“Museu de Arte Sacra: beautiful and sober convent with huge collection of religious art, to be approached carefully”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

When I left that friday around 3pm, I was still the only visitor. What a pity. There's a fantastic collection of religious art and the whole complex is in splendid condition. But even more impressive were the fantastic views on the Bay of All Saints, through the little windows. A beautiful garden is set up around the church and convent. Unfortunately, the place is surrounded by a less attractive neighbourhood. The short and steep Ladeira de Santa Tereza in front of the main entrance is the best way to get here. Strolling down the Rua do Sodré felt left comfortable. Note that this museum has special opening hours. It's open on mondays but closed in the weekend. It's not allowed to take photographs inside.

“Prety sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Lovelly church, but ask for the backyard, where you will have one of the best views of your life! It's an open area with the bay sight and probably one of the best sunsets ever
