Casa de Santos Dumont

Casa de Santos Dumont Review

The Santos Dumont House was built in 1918 by one of the world's first aviators. Santos Dumont's inventions fill the house, including a heated shower he developed before most homes even had running water. The home doesn't have a kitchen because Dumont ordered his food from a nearby hotel—the first documented restaurant delivery service in Brazil.
