    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Palácio Pedro Ernesto, in Cinelândia, was built in 1923 to house the Brazilian Parliament but is now occupied by the City Council. It has witnessed some of the most important political events in Rio, even after the transfer of the capital to Brasília.

    Closer to Flamengo,it's the former President's residence.
    Brazilian presidents lived here until 1954,when President Getulio Vargas commited suicide in his bedroom,and than,with the transfer of the Brazilian capital to Brasilia,it became a museum(Republic Museum).
    It has a very interesting collection of French and Brazilian furniture,a cultural space for exhibitions,music,theater,cinema,video,and it has a book shop.

    This magnificent building, located in the Centro next to cathedrals and the Imperial palace, was where the Brazilian congress met when Rio was Brazil's capital.
