I decided to rate 3 stars specially because lately these nice and historical place is a bit abandoned. Either way, make sure in your walking tour around downtown to check it out.

Wonderfully unique and historic building, housing local arts and drama groups. Well worth a visit. Gives a window in the local arts scene!

Nice place to visit downtown, a very beautiful building that has cultural activities, exhibits and a nice café at the last floor, which is one of the best places to see our famous sunset. It used to be a hotel where our poet Mario Quintana lived. One of the floors has a very nice and relaxing garden.

This place is a must-see in Porto Alegre. It's a shame that some rooms are empty but you can still see where Mario Quintana used to live and check out some art exhibitions. There's also a really nice garden and a café on the top floor with a fine view of the Guaíba Lake.

The Casa de Cultura Mario Quintana used to house a hotel where the writer lived for a while - his bedroom is still kept as it used to be and can be seen through a window by the visitors. The terrace also features a garden.

Amazing place to go while in the city! There's an exterior garden on the last floor, beautiful, inside a coffee and restaurant shop. There are wonderful exhibitions almost every month and even classes for general public, if scheduled (artistically driven). Also, on Thursday's you can go to life drawing classes for free, at 2pm

This is one of the greatest Brazilian poets. It worths learning more about this work and life. The coffee in the museum is great too.
