Nice view from the top

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.

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 floor. Less busy at week days.

If you come here they have a nice meal. Not big not small. Fair price i guess. U can just chill and have a coffe. There are cultural things to do as well

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!

Nice place to visit downtown, a very beautiful building that has cultural activities, exhibits and a nice café at the last floor, which is one of the best places to see our famous sunset. It used to be a hotel where our poet Mario Quintana lived. One of the floors has a very nice and relaxing garden.

Thank CCitton
