Piratini Palace, Porto Alegre

4.1
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.

    The Piratini Palace is a beautiful building located in front of the square Wrong. serves as headquarters for Diodorus State Governor. Pretty much as much outside as inside, is worth a visit.

    A discreet location in front of praça da matriz, without much expression or visual appeal. the internal environment is more pleasant and luxurious with some works of art and antique furniture. but nothing spectacular.

    This is one of the most significant buildings of Porto Alegre and reflects the whole quality of an architectural style, both in and outside your internal environment.
