Pinacotheca Benedicto Calixto, Santos

4.7
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.

  • House beautiful. Permanent exhibition and itinerants of various artists. Currently under construction in the first. Walk, which is a good sign: they're preserving the acquis and historic heritage. Large wooded garden which houses a pleasant Bistro. Recommend the visitation to this last House of edge of Santos.

  • Very cool to see some of the history of Saints. Too bad, just that the upper floor is being renovated, so banned. Special attention to the bistro garden, which is a charm! Adorable.

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.
