  • Celia's House maintains a small but relevant exhibition on the Cavalhadas. The high point is listening to her own history, often confused with the family, as his brothers were characters in the party and your mother a museum. If you like to know the history of the places we visit, the Museum of the Cavalhadas of Pirenópolis is worth, do not miss!

  • It was a shame not to know. I wanted to see, and met a couple who didn't find open. The street right is so beautiful, I waited for the sights of the city were open.

  • This place is amazing, stays in the House of an address that has the story of the Cavalhadas mixed with your life, your late mother and his two brothers. Getting there ring the Bell if it is closed, because she will see you. It's a cultural immersion.

  • A great place to meet on the cavalhadas and why so much Bull around town. Great effort of a lady and now, your daughter, to keep alive the history of the cavalhada, Porto Alegre, a party that is part of the local culture. Stay at her house, occupies two rooms and have a lot of clothes, masks, pictures, objects ... Out the explanation of the maintainer of the Museum, which is a show. And the input value is symbolic, $2.00 in jan 2018. For those who like to learn a culture in local pco visit, worth knowing.
