This old house is very well preserved and beautiful. There is a cultural centre that is not so much of interest for tourists.

The "Casa de Cultura Mário Quintana" is a former hotel, where the famous poet Quintana used to live. For me personally the building was interesting and the view from the top

The building is super pretty and inside you can take a look at art, literature, and other things. They also advertise for future attractions, so take a look at the boards inside so you can pick one to watch if you are still in PoA.

Best place in POA to spend a whole day of great pleasure and leisure. A nice restaurant to enjoy the sunset Guaíba!

At weekends it actually feels like a pulsating heart with all those people coming and going. Art, literature, cinema, music, gastronomy, everything right in the heart of the historic city centre. Great entertainment for both adults and kids. Nice café and bistrot on the top...More

I decided to rate 3 stars specially because lately these nice and historical place is a bit abandoned. Either way, make sure in your walking tour around downtown to check it out.

Wonderfully unique and historic building, housing local arts and drama groups. Well worth a visit. Gives a window in the local arts scene!
