Museo Sacro de Caracas

Lonely Planet review

Accommodated in a meticulously restored colonial building that stands upon the site of the old cathedral cemetery, this museum displays a modest but carefully selected collection of religious art. Duck through the low doorway into the dark, old ecclesiastical prison, where remains of early church leaders still lie in sealed niches. The Museo Sacro also stages concerts and recitals and has a delightful cafe inside a former chapel of the adjacent cathedral.
