  • My wife being Brazilian said this is a really very important writer. When you see all the books in a variety of languages you must admit that he was very successful. It is interesting to see the place...  more »
  • Did not go inside, just made nice photos with Jorge outside. We felt the price is high for family of 4 for what it offers.  more »

  • 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.

  • I like mt of the Museum, it was actually the only thing that I liked in the historic center of ilhéus. What caught my attention was that the people who exhibit the Museum and tell the story of Jorge are teenagers, boys and girls entered there in that environment, getting an audience demanding of people who know the works of Jorge. Worth knowing, 5 real input in one piece.
