  • The visit is fast, which I think is a positive point, the ticket is cheap, 5 and 2.5 full and half. In order to have good handicrafts to buy

  • It is an immersion in the culture and literature. If I'm not mistaken pays 1 2 tales or less to enter. People are educated and well informed. They have a lot of facts about the life and works of Jorge Amado. It's worth it.

  • The life story and the production of Jorge Amado is very rich and Islanders breathe all this. The House of culture cannot show the breadth of his work with what you have exposed there (some clothes, furniture, ceramic frogs, and book covers ...). On the second floor has a mural recounting in detail the life and contributions of Jorge Amado and for me it was the best part, though hard to read the text with people walking to take selfies. But it's worth a lot to visit, because the building is beautiful and we can imagine a little of what was his life. It's not a place prepared to receive wheelchairs.
