Good view and excellent to take pictures. Very clean and organized! You don't need a ticket. The only problem is that you can't take pictures inside of the house.

Very interesting place, it is the building that used to be the residency and office of the governor in wintertime. Although not a really old (50 years or so) or very big building, it was built to resemble european palacettes and fit in the european feel of Campos de Jordao. Now a historical place housing artworks from local painters and... More

the tours take place in groups of 25 people, no need to make reservations. A little queue on the weekends but the groups go every ten minutes. You get to see many art pieces from Tarsila do Amaral and others. Also it is possible to visit the residential area, still used by the governos and his family.

The guided tour is really short (at most 20 minutes) but it's interesting. Inside the palace you can find artwork from very important artists like Tarsila do Amaral.

This was one of the best art museums I have ever visited. If you love Brazilian modern art, you must know Tarsila do Amaral, Candido Portinari, Victor Brecheret, Di Cavalcanti, Anita Malfatti, Lasar Segall, Aldo Bonadei and others - and they are all there together with furniture pieces from other centuries, a very unique architecture and gifts received by the...

The tourists must visit the old palace, for they can see some pictures of major Brasilian painters, such as Tarsila Amaral, Di Cavalcanti e Anita Malfati. There are some distinctive furniture as well. Interesting architecture stile. There is a line all the time, not so long...but it´s free anyway.

Beautiful place, extremelly well-kept, protected. Has an amazing view from up there, too. Good parking space, restrooms, accessibility, etc. And the guided tour itself was very good and informative. No pictures allowed, though. Just outside.

visit the place, enjoy the view , go inside the church with its windows with a great scenery... Inside the palace you can see history, beautiful art ( paintings, furniture, musical instruments, art, carpets and curiosities)...just loved to have the opportunity to visit a beautiful place in my State. Oh and there is a café nearby with a store.

Thank Larabertelli
