  • This Palace offers many activities: - visit the art deco House, very well preserved - the statutes of Rodin scattered in the garden - temporary exhibitions in a recent plot underneath buildings. During our visit, it was an exhibition of photographs of artists bahanais of good level. -a nice café where you can eat. A bit expensive. A nice break during our stay.

  • Charming place! Located in the neighborhood of grace, a central location close to Ladeira da Barra and the Hall of Vitoria. Easy to get, there's a taxi stand at the door of the Museum and across the street from a bus stop. The mansion that houses the collection and some temporary exhibitions is beautiful and has a lot to tell about the family who lived there before the House to become the Secretary of education of the State of Bahia and the Rodin Museum. Count on the support of the team of monitors that make your visit worth even more worthwhile. Well prepared and very nice to tell us the details of everything, very cool!!!! lol after we found the Palace cafe, with a lot of varieties of snacks, after visiting all and learn much stop there to enjoy some hotness! and soon after the cafe we have the flag of good modern architecture which houses the temporary exhibitions of contemporary art. The Museum also offers short courses and cultural activities, literary, artistic and entertainment for all ages. Whenever I show up there, marco coffee with friends and love dunk in the garden watching the plants, trees and sculptures by Rodin. Admission is free!

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.
