    Well maintained place with stunning visual where in addition to visiting the beautiful works of art exposed you travel around gardens that refer us to a romantic past full of peace and has a very nice place for a good coffee!

    While admiring the works of one of the greatest painters who passed through this land, you can relax in the new coffee in their gardens. Mansion Centennial that carries the culture of a people and the exuberance of a city. The programming is dynamic and the agenda is disputed. An invitation to fun with Earth culture.

    The pinacoteca is located near the beach in saints and figure as a kind of resistance in history amid the buildings of the edge. The place is beautiful and has a wonderful garden. Worth the visit.

    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.

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.
