  • impossible not to be moved by the story of this strong woman (black, poor, illiterate, wife and Northeast), fervent Catholic, that contrary to all predictions, and widow with 2 daughters, also women, won hunger, drought and poverty and managed to turn all that in art. When visiting the cultural centre one of the daughters of the deceased Ana of Carrancas fara honors: a little grandiose memorial; the workshop; ovens always burning and finally the small shop where the parts are traded and a good finger of prose with Maria Cruz (one of the daughters), pedagogue, primary teacher tenured civil servant of the city and transferred to the Ana culture center of Carrancas where continues making the parts of clay with the same style of your late mother: masks of clay antropozoomorficas (Zoomorphism-mixture of animal and man) of hollow eyes (an homage to her husband is blind). The Cultural Center will always be closed: tap the intercom to be answered.

  • Despite all your history, the site is overlooked by companies that exploit the tourism in the city. Noticed that the bus pass, and even make reference to the site. Lack of incentive and dissemination.

Where to stay in Petrolina

Much of Petrolina’s activity centers around the snaking Sao Francisco River, and the majority of the city’s hotels can be found here. These vary in quality but offer easy access to restaurants, bars, and stores as well as the city of Juazeiro, which sits just across the bridge. Those who want to enjoy the youthful buzz and affordable eateries that the University provides should look for accommodations near or on Dom Malan Square. Smaller guesthouses and bed and breakfasts tend to be less expensive but are generally tucked away in residential areas.
