    Cultural tour of a lifetime. Space of the lives of the Bahian writer Jorge Amado and big your wife and also a writer Zélia Gawain. Site that allows us to uncover the history and culture of a people, who through a regional literature laden with symbolism and charms, makes us understand what Bahia and its mysteries.

    Lots to explore. I didn't know anything about George Amado but now I know how his kitchen and bedroom looked like. It was a cool place to see. Seems like a good source of information on Bahian culture.

    Good to see if you know Jorge Amado or are interested in Bahian culture. The gardens are great and the house itself is pretty impressive, but lacks lots of things from how it originally was. One of the guides speaks English. Can be difficult to park on the street, normally full.

    Well preserved, immersive and interactive. A highly insightful look into Jorge & Zelia's lives, loves and inspirations. Free on Wednesdays too.

    Great restoration and very well organized guided visit. No languages other than Portuguese, though.

    This is a very interesting place to visit: a family home of Brazilian writers Jorge Amado & Zelia Gattai turned into a charming house museum; a great place to learn about the spirit of Bahia, and also experience the much talked about "bohemian" heritage of the Rio Vermelho neighbourhood. Recommended.

Where to stay in Salvador

The majority of accommodations in Salvador fall into three distinct groupings. If you want to be close to the best historical attractions, stay in or near the old town of Pelourinho, a few minutes from the city's west-facing coastline. This also puts you in the heart of Salvador's tourist-driven nightlife. Your second option is to stay at the southwestern tip of the city, in the neighborhood of Barram, where you'll have instant access to one of Salvador's favorite beaches. Finally, look a bit farther afield to Rio Vermelho, a quieter beachside neighborhood facing south.
