    The House is beautiful, but I missed. It would be amazing if the House were all furnished/with the Marqueza objects. So you would enter in history without having to be reading everything only on the walls.

    Listed as a historical monument in the State of São Paulo since 1971, the Solar da Marquesa de Santos-the seat of the Museum of the city of São Paulo is a rare example of São Paulo's 18th-century townhouse and worth a visit, whatever your interest in architecture, is the various free displays present. It is interesting to note the parts of the original walls and the techniques used there. Of Windows and terrace you can observe other landmarks of downtown São Paulo, like the imposing "Banespão" (building Altino Arantes) and Pateo Collegio.
