Pinacotheca Benedicto Calixto, Santos

(4.5/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • is part of the local culture to meet the pinacoteca. beautiful home, beautiful view of the beach, I hope you can be more publicized and more care to always be available to the public. more attractions are always welcome and with the installation of the coffee was even hotter to do a tour.

  • The Pinacoteca is in a mansion flat in 2012. It was built in 1900. In your collection more than 220 screens of which 62 are Benedicto Calixto and one of Pedro Alexandrino. The works of the 9:00 at 6:00 pm and super indico a visit for those who like art, culture and enjoy gardens and tasting something tasty in the bistro which is located behind the gardens. I FEEL GOOD every time I go there.

  • A wonderful ride full of history. House beautiful super well maintained by the city and today tumbled. Example of Art Deco architecture, with works by Benedito Calixto on second floor as well as temporary exhibitions downstairs, and a delightful garden with plenty of shade on hot days. At the bottom of the House a delicious bistro restaurant. With tables in the backyard.

  • 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.
