The setting of important events in Brazilian history, the edifice that is now home to Casa França-Brasil has been used for a variety of cultural activities since 1990.
Erected in the 19th century, it was one of the first buildings to be protected as a Historical Patrimony, in 1938. Recently, it underwent structural and restoration work. Today, Casa França-Brasil offers a 700 square meters large exhibition hall, as well as two other smaller rooms which can be adapted according to different artistic activities.
The property also includes a courtyard with plants, stone-made benches, tables and artificial lighting. From there, one can appreciate the view of the traditional Our Lady of Candelária church.
