Museo de Arte Sagrado information
The Museum of Sacred Art, inside the cathedral, displays a collection of religious icons, vestments and medallions.

Look out for one of the world's smallest books, a thumbnail-sized volume containing the Lord's Prayer in several languages. Guided trips only, call outside of normal hours.
