“It is a must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Beautiful place and a great art collection. The arms collection is probably one of the largest in the world.

“Not for me!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

It is a very okay place to spend your day if you dont have anything else on your schedule. Went here with my girlfriend and a friend of hers and i was more busy entertaining them and myself..hehe. A beautiful place, but anything with art doesnt really draw my attention. Would recommend this place to those who are interested though!

“Strange but Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

Brennard's works aren't to everyone's taste, but I am glad I didn't miss seeing his creations! He is famous and has won various prizes all over the world. If you are already in or near Recife, I would go.

“Fine art collection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

An interesting collection of fine art from many periods. The setting for all of the art is in a medieval looking castle. The collection contains Rodin, Botero, as well as Dutch and Asian masters and overall has a surprisingly European feel. It was very surprising to see a medieval type castle in the midst of the tropical setting of Brazil, and even more so to see that it was filled with a huge collection of medieval weapons and relics.
