Shown around by a delightful young lady, who mixed information about the building with facts about the local area. If you are interested in government, architecture or Rio's history, this is a very enjoyable place to spend an hour.

We only passed this building as we made our way on a walking tour but it was the most impressive one of the day. It is of classic design and in superb condition.

In this palace it's all about justice. A guide tells you everything about the palace: you can have a guided tour in Portuguese, but also in English and it's for free! Nice how to see how the parliament in Rio looks like

I passed by it, when my private tour guide and I walked towards Praça Quinze. I saw a group of young men and women in navy blue uniform coming out of the main door and taking photos.

This is one impressive building from the outside, I recommend doing the guided tour, you get an explanation and access to areas normally not accessible for the general public. Open on mondays!

Centro
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born.
With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical

proof that the old and the new can live together
harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where
all major companies house their offices. However, the
region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like
