    I really enjoyed. It's a good opportunity to go back in time in the history of Brazil and experience the brazilian aristocracy of the time. Did the tour. No need to schedule. It was very interesting and the home, artifacts and furniture are very well preserved.

    I was still a kid, I don't remember anything I've ever seen that marked my recollection. Could be further disclosed to visitors, I don't see much incentive and not comments

    It was a history lesson, and the idea of simulating what life was like at the time of 1800 to 1900 very interesting. Recommend's tour for those who truly know the history. Thanks a lot!

    Through guided tour you can meet the 19-century mansion and present to children the difference between the life of someone very Rico in time with the amenities of today.

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.
