    A good walk to get to know the story of Jorge Amado. Furniture of the time, very interesting building. Writer objects.

    The home is well cared for and your impeccable collection, but the same would a guide giving a more detailed view of the life of Jorge Amado.

    Unfortunately I left to see the historic center on Sunday and to my surprise it was closed. Just met the facade.

    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.

    The House is poorly preserved, precarious structure to receive tourists, impression of abandonment by those responsible for Administration of the historical and cultural heritage

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.
