Open in the evening, at least on a Friday when we visited. Lovely restoration and design of one of the classic Masonic homes. Very well presented exhibit about a local music/dance tradition. Cafe, courtyard and other rooms all very esthetically pleasing. Free, contributions requested.

The casa da cultura has changing exhibitions showcasing local art and culture. Always worth to go there if they have something new. The building is beautiful and has a little cafe in the backyard. Look out on the second floor for nice views of the city.

Had a two exhibitions of local artists. It's not very big but the building itself is great. Well worth spending 30mins here to have a look around.

This place is very resourceful to promote a good understanding of the city's tradition and attraction. It's also a place where you can buy stuff from locals, supporting local businesses...
