  • I love to visit! Even after several reforms, the first floor still retains walls in taipa de pilão and pau-a-pique. Located near the Páteo do Colégio, site of the founding of the city, the Manor is considered the oldest example of urban housing. Some rooms are with its period furniture, including the Marquise's bathtub! Beautiful!

  • Very cool. Located in the old centre, old mansion well maintained, there's a bit of story telling exhibition of São Paulo. Worth visiting.

  • Building preserved as far as possible. The walls are very thick and show the technique of rammed earth. The façade is quite nice and the room is kept to show the construction of the site is well preserved. The first floor was closed on the day I visited. :( Just met the floor.
