City Hall - Paco dos Acorianos (Palace of the Azoreans), Porto Alegre

3.2
Erected in 1898 and located in the historic city center, City Hall - Paco dos Acorianos (Palace of the Azoreans) was constructed in the monumental manner prevalent at the time of its building. This historic site at the heart of the state capital was designed by Italian architect Giovanni Carrara Colfosco, who had previously made his name as a builder of railway bridges. The building’s facades are decorated in an eclectic style that was greatly influenced by neoclassical patterns and details. You can see this city landmark when you walk through the Montevideo Square. Note the groups of sculptures in front of the building, which are allegorical representations of principles such as freedom, democracy, and justice. Just across the avenue is the city’s famous Public Market, with over 100 shops and restaurants.
