  • VICTOR MEIRELLES Museum - r. Victor Meirelles 59 Victor Meirelles (1832-1903) was an artist of caterinense, son of a Portuguese immigrant and a Brazilian very poor. From a very young was noted for his penchant for drawing and painting and at age 14 he won a scholarship to the Imperial Academy of fine arts in Rio de Janeiro. At age 20 (1853) he won first prize in a contest that consisted of a trip to Europe. In Italy and France he lived, worked and studied between the years 1853 and 186. He returned to Brazil and became one of the greatest artists of the time. His work "The first mass in Brazil" has been used in banknotes and stamps and is located in the Museum of fine arts of Rio de Janeiro. He died in 1903. The House where works the Museum Victor Meirelleses was where he was born and lived the artist. It is a typical portuguesa-brasilera House from the end of century XIX. He was about to be demolished, but in 1946 the Government took over and used it for this purpose. The purpose of the Museum is to preserve, research and promote the life and work of the artist. Display collections of drawings, oil paintings on fabric and watercolours from different stages of his career. Also temporary exhibitions and other artistic expressions are performed. | Impossible to reach work by the presence of very friendly people living on the street, just a half block from the main square

  • Beautiful permanent exhibition. The property itself is a historical testimony of the ancient city of Exile, the provincial capital. It's always worth knowing small museums dedicated to the work of a single artist. We can get a good idea of the trajectory that catapulted provincial painter Victor Meirelles the exponent of the Brazilian Empire. There is also space for artists.

  • The House where was born Victor Meirelles is undergoing restoration, so the Museum was transferred to the Rafael Bandeira Street, 41. The one star I'm giving is not for the Museum, but to the House under construction, that you see in the picture. After the work is finished and the acquis coming back here, of course, change my quote!

  • A site that was known within my school, with a work of art education, learn a little more about Victor Meirelles and do a rereading of your history and works. A good place in small, but that takes us back to the past, there is a time when our city was still called Exile.

  • Charming and small museum in the historic centre. There is a fixed display of the artist who lived in this House, Victor Meirelles. And from time to time occur fairs and exhibitions of all kinds highlighting local artists.

Where to stay in Florianopolis

To get a true taste of the city's culture on your trip to Florianopolis, it's best to stay in the historical center on Santa Catarina Island. There you'll find plenty of accommodations--a significantly better selection than on the mainland--ranging from budget guesthouses and hostels to luxury hotels. Many guests, however, choose to take advantage of the island's charming nature by staying away from the city center, in the lakeside district of Lagoa da Conceição. For easy access to the best surf beaches on the island, stay a couple miles farther away at Mole Beach or Barra da Lagoa.
