Do you believe that the place in the picture was once a bank?
So, let’s get to know the CCBB in Rio de Janeiro.

In 1920 the Bank of Brazil decided to buy a commercial building in Rio de Janeiro to create another branch. It became then the most important financial center in Brazil, which lasted 40 years. However, in 1980 the bank of Brazil decided to change the building into a cultural center.

The project was hard, but the bank managed to preserve the original structure of the building and restore the columns, decorations and small details of the construction. In 1989, CCBB was finally opened as a Cultural Center. And that’s what CCBB stands for: Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil (Bank of Brazil Cultural Center).

It’s one of the most important cultural centers in Rio, where you can find, movies, theater, music, and different exhibitions either for a cheaper price or for free. Check out the cultural schedule.
