Chica da Silva House, Diamantina
(2.2/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
As you walk around the former home of Chica da Silva, you will see old furniture, a collection of extravagant clothes, and a permanent display of paintings and poems, all of which evoke the lavish lifestyle of one of Brazil's wealthiest and most famous former slaves. It will feel like you have stepped back in time as Chica da Silva House, typical of the colonial period, has been well preserved. Temporary exhibitions help you understand further the life of the notorious mulatto, who, having been freed from slavery, went on to enjoy the privileges of the white elite, causing quite the scandal.

  • House saved enough and very pretty. I think it would be more interesting if it had a guide, but it's worth the visit. free entry.

  • In November the holiday house was closed and had no warning stating the reason. The diamond Museum heard that the House was under construction. I saw the House just outside.
