The casa (home) of Jorge Amado is sure to spark a thrill among the littérateurs. One of Brazil’s most renowned writers, Jorge Amado had his books translated into many languages, which just goes to establish his popularity. His former house has been turned to a memoir which gives an overview of his life. The lower levels of the house exhibit his works whilst the upper levels are dedicated to the famed author’s life, written in detail in Portuguese. A visit to this museum won’t take up a lot of your time, so it’s definitely worth a visit.
