Solar Ferrão Cultural Center is a dynamic space of art, culture and memory, installed in one of the most important monuments of the polygonal of Salvador’s Historical Center. Considered the “noble house” of Pelourinho, it was the residence of the Maciel family until 1756, when it started to house the Jesuits Seminary. Between 1793 and 1814, it belonged to Pedro Ferrão, from whom it has inherited the current denomination. It has six floors and houses the Solar Ferrão Gallery, the Abelardo Rodrigues Museum and four collections: the African Art, the Popular Art, the Walter Smetak Collection and the Collection of Traditional Musical Instruments Emília Biancardi.
