  • Great site for those looking to find out more about Caruaru and Northeast. Several things that refer to Luiz Gonzaga.

  • Tiny little place, with a price of 2.00 pax R$ entry. All the history and life of Luiz gonzaga are in that Museum, making it a mandatory stop location.

  • Beautiful and charming Museum. It tells the story of the little Princess of the Wild, through many pictures and handmade pieces. Great place to hang out with family and friends.
