The rooms are empty of any furnishing and the patio garden is not really restored. But, there are several paintings with interpretive signage explaining the life of the Chica da Silva across two floors. The balconies give a view she might have experienced when living there.

Chica da Silva was a black slave who married a very influential white man. She was beautiful and intelligent and used her social position to help improve conditions for slaves.
