  • Observe how a former prison-turned-tourist attraction of the city is very intriguing. Has crafts, coffee, jewelry stores and space for presentations. Worth the visit Yes.

  • Nice place to take a walk. For those who like differentiated design of jewellery, worth checking out, why is Amazon region's theme and designers are very creative ... When there are exhibitions tmb are very tasteful. As for the regional articles are for sale there are of excellent quality, but is price for tourists, like "I didn't have time to go to the Ver-O-Peso nor in Icoaraci and need to take souvenirs for family and friends". Maybe it's less expensive than at the airport. Bathroom clean. All you can eat vegan salad (my experience). The highlight are the Sunday Circular dance, you are wonderful! Super recommend! Is a contagious joy! We're out of there! And it's free! Just arrive. Are two Sundays a month. For more details look for "Office Guy" on Facebook.
