  • The Foundation, located in Morumbi, has a park with malls and typical vegetation of the brazilian flora, as sibipirunas and brazilwood and outdoor sculptures. The architecture of the building is in a modern style and allows interaction with nature by glazing through which we visualize the beautiful surrounding vegetation. The collection is very interesting and is composed of pieces related to religion, politics and history of centuries XVII to XX. You can see paintings, furniture, objects of sacred art and artifacts also related to the Portuguese royal family and nobles in Brazil. Photography is not allowed inside the House and parts. There is a tea house where you can have breakfast, brunch or choose snacks and drinks. Admission is $10.00, R5 .00 the sock and on Saturdays is free. Worth the visit.

  • Very good walk and enjoy a moment of peace and quiet. There you can hike, view some items and paintings that recall the past time, as paintings depicting the Royal family and beautiful porcelain pieces. In addition, the Foundation has a space in which you can enjoy a delicious afternoon tea. I chose a white chocolate cake and Brigadier and my mother an Apple Pie, very tasty.

  • Arquitetura marcante e acervo riquíssimo. Muitas peças do período real brasileiro. Pagamos somente o estacionamento (R$15).
  • Brunch nota 10
  • Sensacional!
  • The architectonic relevant house transformed in museum with some beautiful peaces, with one downside, you cant take pictures inside the house. There's a really cozy cafe and a surprising park really worth visiting, and on selected Sundays they concerts. I recommend.
  • Modernist private house that is home to the important Fundação Maria Luísa e Oscar Americano.
