    The architecture is normal, that was restored a short time. A space that should be used more to local culture.

    The place is beautiful, has a very rich history, but it was basically converted to a Museum of reverence to Sarney, Sad fact.

    One of the oldest buildings in the city (1654). Is one of the seven treasures of San Luis. Through history the construction was overseen by Father Antonio Vieira and wrote more than 200 lectures, which are considered to be the first great work of our literature. Former convent and seminar, the military police headquarters, fire department, and then, the revolting: In 1990 the Governor Joao Alberto Souza donated this estate to the Jose Sarney Foundation (one of political allies), but I'm glad that justice in 2009 has decreed to return to the State. And another curious fact is that the bust of the Sarney exposed on this site. "It's been a while since they removed for maintenance," according to local information. I'm glad this taking so long!

    Great visit! I had the pleasure of meeting this fascinating place, on the one hand because the second floor was being remodeled so we couldn't get in, but two super nice ladies treated us and helped us understand a little bit about the history of the place and the fellow that's exposed his works. Not to mention the relics, the cars of José Sarney of the time he was in the Presidency of the Republic (Retro is the new modern). Anyway, the students of grade 3 "A" and "B" c. Mat and Getúlio Vargas in Cantanhede-Maranhão, appreciate the warm welcome in 16/05/2017 day.

    The building is huge and is well maintained. The upstairs has a collection with a large number of pieces donated by Sarney

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.
