Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 September 2013

Jorge Amado was one of the most famous Brazilian modern writers. His work has been translated in many languages and many of his novels were turn into movies.
Fundacao J. Amado is a beautiful light blue building in the heart of the Pelourinho, the historical center of Salvador de Bahia. Inside the museum you have documents and panels about the life and works of this great character, that is one of my favourite writes.
Very nice!

This is a very interesting museum which is actually Brazilian writer Jorge Amado's former house right smack in the center of the Pelhourinho district. Don't see how he got any work done! It has many of his artifacts, his typewriter, etc., and histories of all his novels. Folks who haven't read Amado may not be very interested, but if you're in Bahia, this writer captures Brazil, and specifically Bahia, like no other. Recommend a visit for Amado fans.

In the middle of Pelourinho, Casa de Jorge Amado hosts a history of the writer with objects, manuscripts, book covers and other memorabilia. You can get most of his books here (which are often hard to procure even in Brazil). And awesome acarajé right in front.

Since you will be in the Pelourinho, is worth going to visit the home of one of the most renowned names in Brazilian literature.

Right at the top of Pelorinho, the Jorge Amado museum, even if you never heard of this great writer, commands a superb view of the historical centre. Inside you get to see a great display of the life and works of Amado with very interesting pieces that belonged to the writer and a chronological presentation of his every work. On the ground floor there is a great little cafe and from the many first floor windows you get that unique picture of the 'ladeira'. I'd say it's a must!
