  • Even though the space has a great historical and cultural value, have been dwelling of the famous writer from Bahia, Jorge Amado (born in Itabuna/BA), could be better preserved and, consequently, better exploited for tourism for the city of Ilheus, which administers the site. We had the feeling that the cultural heritage of the city-cocoa, the colonels, locations of important part of Jorge Amado in his books, etc.-are not well explored by the cultural area of the municipality.

  • Jorge Amado's House sits on a square, well located and well known. Inside the House there are Jorge Amado's own objects, very interesting. Really worth a visit, because you feel part of the story and imagine thousands of things for which he should have passed.

  • The place is interesting to get into. Has a few things to see and do not have full access to the House. Besides is charged $5 per person to get in and the place is kept with public money, that is, we pay twice.

  • Great place to meet in Ilhéus, where tourist options are extremely restricted. The tour is a little boring because of the lack of preparation of guides, but the place is fascinating and is mandatory visitation point for tourists.

  • Very nice view of this writer's lifestyle so awesome and know a little of your intimacy. The garden is beautiful. Is well maintained and has amazing pieces, like the Orishas. Loved the tour.

Where to stay in Ilheus

Thanks to the city's well-developed tourist infrastructure, you won't have any trouble finding accommodations in Ilheus. For a luxurious experience, stay in a resort or eco-lodge on the seashore, where you'll have easy beach access and a relaxed atmosphere. You can experience beach proximity at a fraction of the price by booking a private bungalow or beachside cabin. There's no better way to get a feel for the city's history, however, then by looking away from the center and staying on a cacao plantation in the nearby hills, where you'll be able to see how the "chocolate tree" is grown and harvested.
