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.

Where to stay in Santos

Look to the west of Avenida Dr. Washington Luiz for the greatest choice in accommodations, with the main cluster of popular places located here. Choose from chain hotels both simple and luxurious, as well as characterful, family-run pousadas tucked away on residential and commercial side streets. Move farther from the coast to find backpacker-friendly hostels and apartment rentals, ideal for those wishing to keep costs down or stay for longer periods of time.
