Housed in a tranquil 17th-century cloister, the Museu de Arte Sacra da Bahia has high stone walls, a shady courtyard and bay views. Displayed in the former monks’ quarters (of the Carmelitas Descalços, or Barefoot Carmelites, order) is a collection of 17th- and 18th-century sacred art, including carvings from the demolished Igreja da Sé.
