Benin House

-Salvar nos favoritos-

Do you know Benin House? Inaugurated in 1988, this cultural space is in a large house on Padre Agostinho Gomes Street, near Taboão, in Pelourinho. If you are taking a tour around the Historic Center, a good idea is to visit first Nossa Senhora Rosário dos Pretos Church and go from there to Benin House, as they are close to one another. The House has a collection consisting of about 200 pieces from the Gulf of Benin, collected by the French photographer Pierre Verger throughout his expeditions to Africa, as well as exhibition halls, mini-auditorium, multipurpose room and even a restaurant. It also has pieces related to the Afro-Diaspora culture, donated by artists and institutions. In addition, this is another architectonic work by Lina Bo Bardi, an Italian-Brazilian modernist architect, known for designing the São Paulo Museum of Art (MASP).
