  • A place where there's always a show or other cultural shows. I visited during the Festival Paraty em Foco. The place was full of wonderful exhibitions. Has space for food and rest. Extremely warm and cozy ... It is worth visiting.

  • 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.
