Centro de Cultura Popular Domingos Vieira Filho

São Luís

An impressive 19th-century mansion housing four fascinating floors of exhibits on São Luís’ festivals – Carnaval, Bumba Meu Boi and Divino Espírito Santo – and its Afro-Brazilian cults such as Umbanda and Tambor de Mina. The friendly staff will show you around and explain, but speakers of English or other non-Portuguese languages are rarely available.
