  • Unfortunately the site has already been so many things, convent, Seminary, police, asylum and other, currently only serve to speak "right" of a Governor is President. The site only serves to tell the good things of the noble President.

  • When I was there, the place was under construction,. The convent is pretty big. Has beautiful gardens. Currently I hope have improved.

  • Don't waste your time, don't go to this convent, because the visitation will not find anything religious. The place is a temple of worship to Sarney: has a living room with the gifts that he won when he was President, and the other room with the summary of your political history. It's not worth it. Oh, the place is surrounded by alleys, that inspired me danger.

  • 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.
