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.

  • Small museum, in beautiful old House and knocked over. Very well maintained House is worth the visit. Stay in praia do boqueirão

  • The Pinacoteca works in a historic Palace from the early 20th century, art nouveau style, whose grandeur makes us imagine the importance of coffee trade, to the city's economy, ' the season. Surrounded by gardens and overlooking the sea, by itself, worth a visit. A good part of the Benedito Calixto is exposed there. In the back of the Villa, try a delicious tea in the Bistro/Café Calixto and end the visit with a golden key. Recommend!
