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.

I am a reader of Jorge Amado and want to visit the "Casa", the sight was ok for me for that reason, but not for any person.

Walking through this museum you can take part of the life of the famous writer Jorge Amada. Well presented.

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.

Not worth going inside. Case de Jorge Amado makes for a nice photo-op in front of it but the museum itself only has a bunch of posters of movie adaptations of Amado's books. If you really want to find out more about the famous author,...More

After many years of its creation, despite the abandonment of the Pelourinho from the local authority, this building resists degradation of the area. I hope they recover in time the salvation of the Pelourinho, it is coming back as over 20 years ago, dirty and...More

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

The museum I feel has more potential considering the importance of Jorge Amado. However not a lot of real interest. Still, is right in Pelourinho Square, and worth a 15-20 minute visit if you are there, but perhaps not worth making a special trip.
