  • Every day people come by milhões everywhere in Rio de Janeiro. Hundreds of people pass through there without even realizing the distinctive architecture of the place. In addition to aggregate a lot of the history of Rio de Janeiro.

  • The station is way to thousands of people daily, you might not pay attention to how pretty she is a shame the excessive advertising hide the beauty of the building. If you have over there, take a starters. Oh, people more aware that come to Central can be seriously confusing if not the story here. On the other hand, a sign says that she is from 1937 and on the other, there is one more of the centenary of the station. What's worse is that it's all right, there is no inconsistency. The only information are incomplete.
