Solar da Marquesa de Santos

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.

Top facade of a mansion, all in light pink. There are 5 large windows with white frames in high relief. The upper part is curved and, above them, decorative triangular-shaped architectural elements, also in white. Between two windows stands an old luminaire in the shape of a lamp, attached to the wall by a long arm of iron all worked, all in the color of red wine. To the left, in front of the first window, part of the grid of a small balcony, all in iron color of red wine meticulously worked.

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.
