  • great place to get to know a little bit of history of the Amazons and that extend to the Amazon region also. several museums and art galleries. photo exhibitions. I really enjoyed meeting the Museum's coin! they have a wonderful collection. The Villa is close to a very pleasant square. get out of there and take one was a very good experience tacacá. I could see that the coffee there was an aspect of abandonment, I don't know if it still works. on the day that I was not working

  • Is a complete tour. Admission is free and there are several museums and art galleries. Well worth the visit

  • Well located in the Centre but with difficulties for parking, has an interesting façade, a Museum of coins and the Amazons, sometimes the night has some attraction. The garden in front, better known as praça da police (in palacio in a certain time, ran the police command) is something abandoned, but in your back there is restaurants, snack bars and Boardwalk
