4.5/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web
As you walk around the 22 rooms at Museu Casa da Hera, you will see displayed countless colonial relics, including antique hand-carved furniture, silverware, and porcelain, as well as thousands of books, a collection of high fashion from international designers, and a rare Henri Herz piano. The former home of aristocratic heiress Eufrásia Teixeira Leite, the museum is evidence of the huge amount of wealth generated by coffee in 19th century Brazil. On-site guides help bring the building’s history to life, and after a tour of the ivy-clad house, you can walk around the estate, full of native flora and regional fruit trees.

  • Place that makes us go back to times past, time to calm. Brooms ... live here and have these places at your disposal at any time makes a lot of good for the soul ...

  • Acquis whimsy and badly insulated. The garden is more interesting than its interior. Too bad, because the site had potential.

  • Without doubt a real immersion in the imperial period, the Museum has a huge collection of time and the garden of the Villa is wonderful.
