Tourist Spot
Recently restored, Pinacotheca Benedicto Calixto is an impressive waterfront mansion housing a permanent exhibition of about 50 works by one of Brazil’s most respected painters. See Benedicto Calixto’s seascapes, landscapes, portraits, and nudes here, or visit the museum library for a collection of art books. The house was built in the early 1900s, in an eclectic style, and formerly served as a private home to several wealthy families. The indoor garden is a testament to the luxury once enjoyed by coffee barons. Make this a short stop on your tour of the city, or time your visit for one of many cultural events and concerts frequently taking place at the museum. Admission is free.

  • To diversify the ride, the Pinacoteca is free and you don't need much time to visit all the Museum. I loved the room about the history of the port and the bistro in the back is a delight.

  • The mansion that houses the Museum is very beautiful! The collection of frames is very Rico. Lack a monitored visit. The Museum is free and in the back there is a beautiful garden with works of art and a coffee.

  • Free admission. Small art gallery in a historic building. It's all very nicely kept, worth a stop for sure. Often hosts cultural events as well.
  • Pinacoteca sensacional! Vale a visita!!!
  • Sempre com exposições belíssimas, esse é um de meus locais favoritos em Santos.
  • O último Casarão Histórico preservado da Orla, foi construído em 1900 pelo alemão senhor Dickr, a decoração interna tem o estilo Art Nouveau, a escada é de mármore Carrara, com corrimão de ferro maciço. No 2º andar tem a Exposição permanente do Pintor Benedito Calixto (Itanhaém, 14 de outubro de 1853 — São Paulo, 31 de maio de 1927) - Promove Exposições de Pinturas e Artes Plásticas em geral, apresentação de grupos Musicais e até Exposição de carros antigos....Centro Cultural muito agradável, tem nos fundos um jardim bem cuidado e muito bom para relaxar.
