2/5 based on 85 reviews on the web
Palace-like building in front of the lake is Cassino do Lago and tells the story of entrepreneurship, joys, and decay. The casino was envisioned as an ambitious project by an enigmatic city mayor Dr. Americo Werneck in 1909. Money wasn’t the problem, and construction of the European inspired building began. Pines were brought from Russia, tiles from France and Portugal, stones from Asia. The music hall featured crystal chandeliers, walls were filled with floral motifs, Chinese and Japanese designers gave the final touches in decoration. The casino opened its doors for one night only, and after that, due to an absurd political disagreement, the doors were never re-opened. Most of the furniture was removed and the building is not very well maintained these days, but is worth the walk down history lane and testament of the times. A lighthouse illuminates the lake in front and produces a stained glass effect of the casino.

  • The building of the Casino of the Lake is a building with an architecture that stands out in the landscape when viewed from the Lake. Residents in the city say that internally is a very beautiful and richly decorated with indoor garden. Too bad it is closed for works, however no forecast for opening for public visitation would be a great visit. For an upcoming trip to Lambari.

  • Beautiful architecture but was closed for works. Looking from the outside is very beautiful from the front into the Lake.

  • Very nice and beautiful walk around inside the Casino, especially when you have craft fairs or exhibitions in it. Only one bicicletario so we can keep the bikes.
