  • The House is a museum mounted on two floors of the historic center of St. Louis and has a collection of the works of an artist/craftsman Nhorzinho wonderful that has a story and life very cool and an amazing talent for wood carving, your wheels of bumba-meu-boi are beautiful. In addition to the collection of the works of Nhorzinho there is also a set of folk art fantastic and worth the visit is accompanied by a guide that help us understand the importance of the artist.

  • Legal.
  • Beautiful place with several Visual manifestations of culture. The details of the works are rich and the House is very beautiful. The Guide/monitors has been very attentive and helpful, demonstrated enough knowledge about the site and about Nhozinho responding all doubts of the tourists. A pleasant surprise on a Sunday morning (usually the historical centre is empty and the museums of the city closed). Needs renovation and conservation: a lot of dust and wear painful.

  • Free visit and guided by the history of popular culture of the island, especially the artisan honored "That". Some guides fall short because they do not explain everything.

  • For those who have interest in knowing the culture of Maranhão, the House joins the story of every culture being portrayed in 3 storey house with objects and many stories of local artists.

Where to stay in Sao Luis

The more upmarket and characterful accommodations in Sao Luis can be found in the historical center, with atmospheric pousadas (guesthouses) and hotels in well-preserved colonial-era architecture. Head east of the Centro district to find budget hostels suitable for backpackers happy with simple lodgings, but who wish to be close to the main architectural sights. Larger, modern hotels lie along the island's northern coast, where a cluster of luxury and mid-range options offer rooms with sea views.
