    The Palace has more than one room that will cause you surprises. Details of the architectural work and changes that has suffered throughout history will be perceived with astonishment. My desire to learn more about the history of Brazil began with this place.

    I only know him from the outside, because there works the Town Hall, but around has a very good market.

    For anyone who is walking around town, a quick stop at the yellow Palace, is a good thing ... but there's nothing special.

    Nice place but bad. The room needs urgent restorations and reforms. History lost by degradation of the place.

    Open every day for free and guided visitation, nice knowing a little bit about the own Petrópolis and the change of location of the city over time. The guide was attentive, but at times you could your own opinion after the explanation (let it).

    Beautiful yellow building with interesting exterior sculpture of an Eagle catching a snake.

    Worth the visit for the historical value and is very close to the imperial Museum.

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.
