  • I was expecting to see a museum about the Marchioness of Santos, but although the House is hers, very little (almost nothing) about her. The Museum of the city of Sao Paulo, when I went, I was with an exhibition on the life of Yolanda Penteado, a socialite in Sao Paulo.

  • It was a pleasant surprise to enter for the first time in the Sun. Very well kept and preserved plants, refers us to our history. On occasion, an exhibition on the life of Yolanda Penteado, São Paulo very influential socialite in the cultural life of the city. Know your suoerficialmente story and was charmed me with the details of a life that began in the countryside and purview to glamour, thanks a lot! Personal objects of the exhibition deserves Marquise and reports of your life in that space. The Manor is a jewel of the city, needs to be more publicized and visited.
