Casa do Nhôzinho

Highly recommended
Fish traps, huts, basketwork, figurines for the highly festive Bumba-meu-Boi folk procession that were made by Nhôzinho himself (he also made beautiful toys), looms, cotton fabrics... From crafts and traditional homes to everyday objects, all the diversity of Maranhense culture is exhibited at Casa do Nhôzinho. A visit that will prove enlightening to anyone wishing to delve in to this world!
