Since 1586, Fray Pedro Bedón lived and worked in the church of Santo Domingo, beginning its legacy of artistic importance. Visit the museum for an overview of the crème de la crème of religious Colonial art, displaying fine technique and cultural syncretism in iconic imagery and vivid nativity scenes.

Fray Pedro Bedón is considered to be the first prestigious painter from Quito in the late 16th and early 17th centuries. This museum houses his works acquired by the Dominican community throughout the centuries that they were present in Quito. Inside the monastery of the Dominican Church you find the religious art museum, with a formidable collection of art from the colonial period. It includes the sgraffito, agrafitto, gold leaf and Chinesco decorative techniques, and magnificent fabrics and silverware.
