Cassino do Lago, Lambari

3.1
#5 of 9 in Things to do in Lambari
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. To visit Cassino do Lago and other attractions in Lambari, use our Lambari vacation website .

  • The Casino of the Lake is a historic building, central to the city's identity of Astyanax. The building was restored externally. But, beginning in 2018, is still closed to visits and cultural activities.

  • The Casino is a return to the past, in a time of old Brazil. Well restored guard the memory of a past thrusting. Worth a visit

  • Pretty much, you have your place in the history of ASTYANAX, currently used for other purposes.
