Monsignor Juan Sinforiano Bogarín Museum (Museo Monseñor Juan Sinforiano Bogarín)

The church's riches

Like any cathedral worth its salt, Asunción cathedral could not go without having wealth hidden in what was the Museum of the Asunción Cathedral Treasure, and is known today as the Monsignor Juan Sinforiano Bogarín museum, in tribute to the priest and researcher who devoted himself to caring, searching, and collecting the church's artistic objects, some purchased and others relinquished to him during his expeditions throughout the country. The museum includes over 400 pieces of the Monsignor Augustine Blujaki collection, part of the sacred content of the exhibition: Jesuit and Franciscan wood carvings, Hispano-Guaraní Baroque and all the silverware used over the centuries to celebrate mass in the cathedral. But you will not only find religious art when you visit this collection, the National History room contains objects as diverse as a green wedding dress that bore witness to a secret wedding, Marshal Francisco Solano Lopez' cigarette case and even a collection of fans belonging to ladies of high society.
