Parque do Catete is an incredible palace right in the centre of the city. We had an amazing time seeing the opulent architecture and furniture of that period, and enjoyed taking a stroll in the landscaped gardens after. It was really interesting to learn a bit more about Rio’s history. A good way to escape the heat!

Our students had a really funny afternoon with history with RioLIVE! They had the experience of visiting Parque and Palácio do Catete in this activity. This is a great trip to the past since the building used to be the official residence of Brazil’s presidents. Besides that, there is also a nice park outside where you can relax, explore with beautiful nature, caves, lakes and much more. An interesting and funny afternoon with history!
