The Cultural Center of Barroco na Bahia, located in the neighborhood of Saúde in Salvador (next to the Historic Center), was the residence of the famous founder of the newspaper “A Tarde”, Dr. Ernesto Simões Filho.The beautiful house was constructed at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century.

The home has a Portuguese tile facade, and shell and stone mosaics.The residence is now protected as a historical monument by the government.  The daughter of the original owner, D. Regina de Mello Leitão, donated the house to the Archdiocese of Salvador for use as a cultural center.  

In 1995 the Archbishop Primate of Brazil, Dom Lucas Cardeal Moreira Neves, allowed the house to be used for the cultural activities of the Barroco na Bahia project.  Under the direction of Hans Bönisch, during 1995 and 1996, the large house, with support from the German government, was completely restored by the European Center of Restoration (Schloss Raesfeld) of Germany. The Barroco na Bahia cultural center can be rented for birthday parties, receptions, and other social events.  For more information contact us by phone + 55 71 3241-6031 or by e-mail.
