Fodor's Review

This colonial mansion set on the Pelourinho provides a glimpse into the life, work, and inspiration of Bahia's best beloved writer, Jorge Amado. A nice coffee shop provides great viewing over the square. This house is conveniently located, but those looking to delve deeper should make the trip to Rio Vermelho's recently opened Casa de Jorge Amado.
