    Place of a great historical significance but apparently the Government has no interest, place dropped the moths, unused or end any apparently was given to nuns and maybe one day turn something mischaracterized as a course of English, a public breakdown etc ... the Bush's taking over, too bad.

    I'm reading several comments (many Google are taken outright from the OFFICIAL RESIDENCE of RUI in BOTAFOGO, used with images of other visitors of his SUMMER HOUSE in Petrópolis. These people, apparently, were not here). Rui Barbosa residence wrote the famous Oração aos Moços and spent his last days before he died, which was your most cherished refuge, which referred to as Sweet Home. Worth at historical value especially for legal experts and law graduates.

    Too bad it is closed to visitors. As well as several other historic buildings in Petrópolis. Lack investment in the city's culture, a place so full of stories. But the House outside is beautiful (I was in the mood to see inside) ...

    This House has spent many summers Rui Barbosa de Oliveira, jurist, politician, diplomat, philologist, translator, speaker and writer, known as "the Eagle of the Hague". Affectionately nicknamed him "sweet home", she wrote many works, among them "Oração aos Moços". Died in this House in 1923, having been one of the biggest funeral procession your presented by Petrópolis.

Where to stay in Petropolis

Unfortunately, no matter how much you're willing to spend, your accommodations in Petropolis won't be quite as luxurious as Emperor Pedro's former palace. Nevertheless, you can choose from a range of delightful guesthouses and boutique hotels during your Petropolis vacation, many of which are housed in well-preserved colonial buildings and offer spacious gardens to enjoy. The city's old center, with close proximity to the palace and the striking cathedral, remains the most popular neighborhood among tourists. However, you can also find a range of places to stay in the southwestern neighborhood of Quitandinha, which contains a scenic lake of the same name.
