  • The 100m from Tiradentes Metro the MAS is one of the easiest attractions to locate. It is not very large but compensates in the beauty of the pieces, beautiful gardens and excellent service. The Nativity scene is beautiful. Admission R $6.00 on 06/2019.

  • It is next to the convent of Luz, the one of Dear Friar Galvão. Lots of baroque sculpture and beautiful works of Aleijadinho. Very easy to go because there is a subway station right there. Take the opportunity to visit the Convent church and get the famous Frei Galvão pills that the nuns deliver free of charge.

  • Impressive, well-maintained museum with some beautiful and unusual artefacts.
  • Although thia is a thematic religious museum is worth a visit to grasp how powerful and rich (in all senses) the church made itself thought out the centuries. Is also a deep view in Portuguese/Spanish baroque architecture and way of leaving. Important to point out that in terms of counter reform Portugal was a easy place to be when compared to Spain.
