  • It was no specific goal with my boyfriend. And I fell in love with the work. Sometimes I wonder what goes on in the head of those artists. .. Anyway ... Auto site incentive for those who want to enter the world of the arts or find out through her rich culture of Maranhão

  • The visit helps you learn about the history of the State, especially the writers. The pieces are in good condition. Access to the building is not so simple, but worth the visit. The guides are very helpful. It is necessary to pay a fee of 5 real and pictures are not allowed in the main area of the House.

  • By visiting the historic centre of Sao Luis our guide showed us this magnificent from a not-so-distant past. Furniture, comfort for the time gave us a glimpse of the life-size of the lives of the settlers. A visit without hesitation. It is not allowed to shoot photos ouprendre it's a shame, lockers are available at the reception to let his business.

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.
