  • The House is a memorial which features 15 designed environments. Visitors can browse through thousand square meters, including the garden where are the ashes of the couple. In addition, each of the environments brings different subjects about their lives. ON WEDNESDAY ADMISSION IS FREE. In the remaining days is R $20 and has half-price ticket.

  • Very nice house where lived Jorge Amado and Zelia Gattai. All very well taken care of. Worth a visit to relax to enjoy the garden and the details of the place.

  • 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.
