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.

The house was built in the early 1900s, in an eclectic style, and formerly served as a private home to several wealthy families.

  • 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.

  • Pinacoteca Benedicto Calixto Important cultural reference point of the city, to keep in permanent exhibition of the works of the painter Benedicto Calixto, plus temporary exhibitions of works of national and foreign artists. Works in a beautiful and stately White Mansion in the neoclassical style, the only remnant of the residences of the coffee barons who took care of the beach Avenue, from the beginning of the century. Evicted in 1985 by the city of Saints, went on to host the Founding Benedicto Calixto, for the purpose of administering the collection of the painter. Largely restored, the space was re-opened in 1992. From Tuesday to Sunday from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Free Admission. Visit this region: Gibiteca Marcel Ratnam; Craft fair. Saturdays, from 3:00 pm, in the gardens of the defornte Beach at AV. Conselheiro Nébias.
