  • My God, where do I start? Oh, yes, i'm sorry. The House of Tales tells the story of the slaves. There's even a senzala inside, underground, with most of the torture instruments, and even the pots where they (slaves) cooked. At the top tells the whole history of the Brazilian currency, and what caught my attention the most: the historical books dated to the 1st century!
