Extremely beautiful

This the official residence of the State Governor. Everything is well kept and the historical furniture fantastic. There are free guided tours everyday but mondays. Check with a local guide.

Considering that Sao Luis is the worst place for attractions that I have visited in Brasil, I give 5 stars for this visit because the attendance was good, the tour is for free and you can learn a little bit about the history of the place. You can also have free access to water, toilets and air conditioner in the museum.

Nice enough building
Aug. 2018 • Solo
The governor still uses it, which is why there are portions of this house that the guides will forbid you from taking pictures in.

It has some old pictures and dining tables used by formerly important and current potentates. If you are a foreigner, you will soon forget it. However, there is a machine that takes pictures of your group in front of an ornate staircase, which is kind of fun. You'll spend about 20 minutes here, which is more than enough.

Very beautiful tourist stop

This incredible building is the home of the Governor. Part of the building is open to visitors, and they offer free guided tours. The tour lasts about a half hour and is worth the time.

A must stop in São Luis
Sep. 2017 • Family
This is the most famous place in São Luis in my opinion. You have to stop here to see the sunset while some artists play beautiful music to enchant the moment.

A Nice Treat
Sep. 2017 • Couples
We were walking in the old town and passed the Lion's Palace. It was open so we decided to go in. This is still the residence of the governor so not all of the palace is open for viewing. What we did see was very nice and our English speaking guide was great.

Probably the visit is too short...

the palace is nice, the collections of paints is also good and the guides are excellent! But there is access only to a limited part of the building so the visit is pretty short...

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!
