This is the Government Palace, but in front of it there is a wonderful square with amazing views to São Marcos Bay. the best of all, it is for free, one of the most beautiful spots in São Luis in my opinion!

Short but very interesting tour of the Palacio dos Leoes. The building and furniture is well kept up and there are many antiques from the 18th and 19th centuries. Well worth the visit.

It's an impressive building in the main area of town to visit with a couple other interesting buildings to check out.

Specially if you come from Europe, I really don´t expect you to be surprised inside. Only few rooms are available for visiting. It´s free though, so it´s worth to spend 15 minutes there and get to check one more item in your bucket list ;)
