Sertao Museum, Piranhas

(2.5/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Sertao Museum is a simple museum showcasing the hard life under the rule of the coroneis (local political masters with engrossing power), weapons used by outlaws, Brazilian cowboys and smugglers. There are photos that show the history of the region, a collection of items from Lampiao, who was a famous Brazilian bandit leader in the last century, and whose exploits turned him into a “folk hero”. There is also a replica of a plaster house used by the local people.

  • The Museum is small and shows the life of the cangaço, with beautiful architecture and well preserved. Staff very polite and kind. Admission is 2.00 and 1.00 half real, for maintenance. Has several pictures, stories and objects used by outlaws, including a winchester rifle 1823, which the Museum belonged to the Lantern.

  • Small museum, but very nice. Tells the story of the cangaço in Piranhas and the region of AL and IF you have several photos, stories and objects used by outlaws, including a winchester rifle 1823, which the Museum belonged to the Lantern. Works of 9:00 the 5:00 pm. If you're in Piranhas, is worth the visit.

  • The Museum is small and shows the life of the cangaço. We found very interesting and even surprised with the visit, mainly because a super thoughtful guide was explaining things, making us the most comprehensive tour. Who is the Piranhas cannot fail to meet.
