The Solar da Marquesa is a great relic of the eighteenth century example of urban architecture of the time. Dona Maria Domitila de Castro e Melo, the Marquesa de Santos, went down in history as Emperor lover Dom Pedro I and the history of São Paulo, in 1834, to buy this great aristocratic townhouse in the heart of the city.
By visiting the Solar, one can find housewares, of the furniture and even the bathtub used Gurney. After his death in 1867, the site was modified and gained a more neoclassical balcony, which characterizes it today.
