A gigantic farm, owned by nothing less than Count Garcia D'Avila, located today where Edgard Santos College is located. The neighborhood really only really started to be inhabited by the lease of these lands. Already located? We're talking about Garcia, a bohemian neighborhood where the words bar and samba mean the same thing.
A mix of interior: simple houses formed the surroundings of what was the farm next to tall buildings and middle-class religious colleges. The mood is festive, and art is emerging in the neighborhood. One of these illustrious figures is 93-year-old sambista Riachão, born and raised in Garcia in the house where he has lived for nearly a century.

In addition the neighborhood is famous for samba on weekends and the bars that roam the streets, on the avenue Leovigildo Filgueiras and Prediliano Pita and its transverse partying among visitors. The place is a “full plate” for those who like delicacies and good music. The Garcia district is minutes from Pelourinho, where is located our Pousada Solar dos Deuses. Be sure to visit!
