El palacio es muy interesante y muestra la historia de Brasil en detalle. Los salones en el segundo piso son magníficos. Además, aprendemos palabras en portugués también. Me gustó mucho haber conocido ese lugar que forma parte de la historia de Brasil.

It’s no secret that Rio is full of beautiful beaches and nature, but the city also offers a variety of museums for those who are eager to learn about the history of Brazil. RioLIVE!
