  • Mt boooom!!!
  • Guided tours, priceless views of the port: translucent, sea ships coming and going. The proposal is to reveal the multiple regional arts and the Museum rises do it like few others. Away from cliches, even the "faith" I heard surprising by the ambiance. Necessary. Enjoy close and also pass in the Pinacoteca of UFAL, who knows what might be going on there? Back to the Museum, the architecture is a treat. I still come back.
