The 16th-century chasuble of the Núcleo Museológico de Arte Sacra (Religious Art Museum Unit)

In August 2020, a set of objects that had been in the custody of the Diocese of Beja for some years and belonged to the Vestry Board of the Parish Church of the Parish of Mértola was deposited at the Museum of Mértola. The 2 custodies from the 17th century and an ex-voto to the Lord of Calvary from the 19th century were immediately integrated into the exhibition of Núcleo Museológico de Arte Sacra. This set included a chasuble, which was kept in reserve because it needed a specific exhibition stand with adequate conditions for its conservation. The chasuble is now included in the permanent Sacred Art exhibition, in the main part of the Church of Misericórdia, in a specially-built display case, which meets all the conservation and security requirements, but also gives this piece the emphasis it deserves.
