  • Dont waste your time..nothing to see here!! Looks as if they have been working on for years...Dont believe any of the fancy "Lighted Up" tourist brochure pics..  more »
  • This was built in 1884 for Crown Princess Isabel by her husband. Today, It is used more for events or exhibition. Nothing spectacular. Just for a quick photo stop.  more »

  • I didn't get any information about it in loco. An empty glass building, I mean with some chairs and other stuff with no purpose all over the place.There were a lot of vendors outside it and it seems to me that they shouldn't be allowed there because it changes the purpose of the place. It's a historical site but a tourist will hardly notice unless he/she knows about Brazil history. It looks more like a food market. No panphlets, no information... I am awfully disappointed.
  • Nice, historic building, yet empty in more than one sense.
