This is a collection of books, articles, and research video material on Jorge Amado, as a writer. The feature translation of his book in more than a hundred languages, a rich collection of correspondence, and a tremendous amount of written appraisals of his work. Amado is by far the most famous Brazilian writer and there are 100s theses and dissertations on his work. You can find the biographies written about his life. But again, it’s great to research!

Even if one is unfamiliar with this famous author, this museum could be worth a visit, particularly for those who have interests in recent history and culture of Bahia and Brazil. Amado is author of many books, and there are informative displays for many of them. Succinct summaries in English appear for each book below an interesting collage of images that include book covers, sketches, and photos. Collectively, the summaries provide information not only about the author but also about the subjects he addressed in his novels--often characters and events in everyday life in Bahia. A small gift shop has items that could be unusual souvenirs to take home or give to others.

I didn't go in, but my wife did. She loved it..., but I loved sitting at the door steps and do people watching..., and a band played outside for hours..., a beautiful church less than 60 meters away..., great spot to spend a couple of hours!

An agttractive, very informative exhibition (thankfully with English translations) which encouraged us to look for his titles to read. The prices of English-language ones at the shop were prohibitive- double the price in local currency.

This is a very interesting museum which is actually Brazilian writer Jorge Amado's former house right smack in the center of the Pelhourinho district. Don't see how he got any work done! It has many of his artifacts, his typewriter, etc., and histories of all his novels. Folks who haven't read Amado may not be very interested, but if you're in Bahia, this writer captures Brazil, and specifically Bahia, like no other. Recommend a visit for Amado fans.

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!

Jorge Amado is one of the most acclaimed Brazilian authors. His books reflect the culture of his home State of Bahia and its people. The "Fundação Casa de Jorge Amado" is located at the very heart of Pelourinho, the historical quarter of Salvador - and Pelourinho is indeed one of Jorge Amado's characters. And a very important one! The "Fundação Casa de Jorge Amado" aims to preserve his legacy and the local culture. As of June 2019, the "Fundação Casa de Jorge Amado" was closed for renovations. Please check before going. Enjoy!

Take a photo as a postal in the top of the street, you can see a fantastic view of Pelourinho. But take care, if you walk on the street, is too steep, don't fall.
