Religious furniture

The first settlers to arrive here showed a great deal of respect for and took great pride in their chapels and their churches. It was completely natural for the best expressions of popular art to be found in the church or religious objects. The religious heritage is a unique cultural and historical wealth. Churches with works of art and decors reveal a part of the history and the identity of those who built this country.
