(4.4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
The headquarters of the local government is situated in Piratini Palace. The exterior is in neoclassic style amidst green gardens, while the interior is decorated with painted murals and Baroque frescoes. Chandeliers that are replicas of existing ones in the Palace of Versailles, a marble staircase that leads to governor’s office, and gold plated 42 sq m (452 sq ft) of carpet are some of the highlights of this mansion. At the entrance, you will be welcomed by three sculptures by artist Paul Landowski representing agriculture, industry, and spring. In the gardens there is also an antique car, and an Egyptian-themed fountain, as well as a Creole shed, where you are greeted with a cooking demonstration of traditional gaucho culture.

  • 1898 building in classical style, inspired by the Petit Trianon at Versailles. It houses the headquarters of the State Government since 1921. Named after the city Gaucho Piratini, first capital of the Riograndense Republic. One can visit the interior of Mon-Fri.

  • Beautiful building in which it is possible to take a guided tour. You can see the exhibition of a Ford T and the car used by Getúlio Vargas, both restored.
