  • Incredible exposure. I visited the casa de cultura in 15/11 holiday. The exhibits were amazing, and the balconies of the upper floor the view was even better. Worth knowing.

  • a unique experience, risked on that date: Home November 2016 various types of embroidery made by artists such as language, emotional expression, etc. There are permanent exhibitions, you could see who had won awards, all beauty, detail and unique fineness. There are other rooms with other mad artists works. Admission is free, it is opposite the port and next to the ancient Church of Santa raffle, but this last visit just a few hours in the morning. The House is very well restored and preserved.

  • Estive no local durante a "Mesa Zé Kleber - Direitos dos Povos Caiçaras" na FLIP 2016, Achei o lugar aconchegante apesar de um pouco abafado, o fato é que tinha muita gente.
  • Vale a visita
  • A riqueza cultural de Paraty é fascinante!
  • Excelente opção de lazer e cultura em Paraty. Vale a visita.
  • Entrada gratuita. Faz bons trabalhos com a comunidade local, mas poderia ter melhores exposições.
