If time permits, stroll along the cobblestones of Rua Bernardo Ramos, the city’s first street. Flanking this historic center are row buildings once owned by Portuguese merchants. They are painted in a spectrum of pastel colors. The street’s namesake was the founder of the Geographical and Historical Institute of Amazonas. His extensive coin collection can be viewed at Museu Numismatica Bernardo Ramos. Shown here is the highly-rated Alô Café Restaurante e Lanchonete. This is a good place to have a casual meal surrounded by antiques collected by the owner.
