Photographer's Note

A sugar mill to the sea. Though situated in an urban area, the architectural ensemble that makes up the Solar Unho was in the seventeenth century, a complex of the same type of devices found in the area of ma-ta: with manor house, chapel and slave quarters. The property belonged to Unho Pedro de Castelo Branco, who lived in the manor from 1690, and gave xor inherited the name of one of the most beautiful postcards of Salvador.

In the first place where the slaves slept, a restaurant co-midas typical. The big house houses the Museum of Modern Art of Bahia. And the chapel is still a beautiful tribute to Our Lady. Di-Zem that even today the Solar Unho is populated by the souls of former slaves, died in the dungeons and torture chambers. If they are there, say nothing, keep quiet to hear jazz on Saturday afternoons, join the people who go there to enjoy such beauty.
