The building is super pretty and inside you can take a look at art, literature, and other things. They also advertise for future attractions, so take a look at the boards inside so you can pick one to watch if you are still in PoA.

Best place in POA to spend a whole day of great pleasure and leisure. A nice restaurant to enjoy the sunset Guaíba!

At weekends it actually feels like a pulsating heart with all those people coming and going. Art, literature, cinema, music, gastronomy, everything right in the heart of the historic city centre. Great entertainment for both adults and kids. Nice café and bistrot on the top floor. Less busy at week days.

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.
