Museum of Sacred Art reviews
Most sacred art museums are so much liturgical gowns and monstrances. This museum is almost exclusively spectacularly carved Santos and other statues. The four room collection is truly amazing... more »
Not an easy museum to find, which is a bit surprising as Asuncion as it is a simple block/grid system of avenues and boulevards. Taxi driver had never heard of it, and couldn't find it yet there it..... more »
One of the best museums in Asunción. Sacred art is the biggest artistic treasure Paraguay produced during its colonial period. Housed in a beautifully restored italian style villa in a quiet downtown corner. The Museo de Arte sacro exhibits remarkable pieces of art, mostly made by the Guaraní indigenous in the Jesuit Reductions that flourished in the XVII century.
