Caffarelli industrial and art collector who spared no effort to bring it back to full splendor. Today still has many historical improvements where stands the big house with over 1,200 square meters and where about 18 years from now the farm receives tourists from around the world for a true return to the past in a house alive (people live there) and not as a museum. The tour starts in the gardens of the farm, near the lake and walk traverses a beautiful avenue of royal palms, passing alongside the ancient terraces used for dryed the coffee. Then going into the big house by the front door. Inside the house, it's told facts and objects. Paintings, porcelains, tapestries, furniture, chandeliers, pianos and many many other historical riches collected after many years of research and query between art auctions, antique shops, houses to be demolished, etc. At the end of the seven main halls, it's served a delicious freshly brewed coffee from natural grain, accompanied by warm cheese breads, juices, water and possibly other delicacies to match. Is expected soon to be install a local shop items and souvenirs, as well as opening other cultural spaces like Gallery Magdalena Vieira Manso, spaces for itinerant exhibitions, etc.
