“Cultural point of interest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

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

“I'd say it's a must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

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!

“beautiful little museum in the heart of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

The museum is lovely. There are a lot of employees that are bilingual, so it really helps when you want to know more about something. There is an upstairs view of the city, and its absolutely beautiful. The museum has a good collection of Jorge Amado's belongings and works. It's worth the visit.

“History of pelourinho”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Museums after all allows you to understand the history of the place and the transformation that has taken place, and this is exactly what Jorge Amado Museum does. Totally impresssive is the laboratory and mini infirmary, plenty of diseases been treated in the past with limited diagonastic equipment and antibiotics!!!. the display of furniture and its grandeur brings a similarity between Portugal and salvador. Visit to Pelourinho not completed without a visit to this small museum.
