The building, a former militar hospital is interesting in itself. At the moment there are few exobitions and I enjoyed seeing the importance of food in Para's culture. The exibition is quite small and could be done much better.

The restaurant was close and there was only an exposition (visual arts). They could make a better use of this historic site.

The building and surroundings are very beautiful, it is a nice place to stand just admiring the view, but apart from that is noting really special about the place.

Place is beautiful, nice night view to the river, including view to an old navy vessel. The cultural center does have some interesting attractions, but people actually go there for the place and the views from it. Restaurant is pricey, but good.

The complex itself is a beautiful place to go for a walk. Inside the house there is a restaurant which I strongly do not recommend. They are unable to provide good service and to bring your order in an acceptable time. Don't go to this...More
