Even if one is unfamiliar with this famous author, this museum could be worth a visit, particularly for those who have interests in recent history and culture of Bahia and Brazil. Amado is author of many books, and there are informative displays for many of...More

This mansion is the face of the region. Outside, the architecture is simple but very nice when you see where it is and the suroundings. Inside there is a small museum about a very famouns Brazilian writer.

The cathedral looked beautiful in the daylight with its upper floors shining under the sunrays. The doors and windows were ornamental and the walls were decorated with ancient paintings and stuffed animals.

We went in out of curiosity as I'd read some of Amado's works in the past. It is a collection of letters and photos and tributes to his writings. It's well done. Oh, and there's a small café inside.

I suppose this place reaches the hearts of portuguese and brasilians in a deeper way, as Jorge Amado was/is one of the greatest writers of last century, and a true son of Bahia. It was the 2nd time I visited the place and got moved...More
