    Palace in central Rio, very sumptuous and beautiful. Unfortunately today serves as the headquarters for legislators of the river.

    The Tiradentes Palace is a historical attraction in Rio de Janeiro. Its construction is of 1926 and was the place where Tiradentes got stuck and was the Chamber of Deputies in the period in which the River was the Capital of Brazil. Today, works the seat of the Legislative Assembly of Rio de Janeiro. The site has huge historical content and very interesting to do the tour with the monitors who work on site. It is very interesting the models representing the "BEFORE" and "AFTER" of the changes in the architecture and design of the Palace. For the tourist, it is possible to visualize and understand perfectly what was formerly Palace and as he is today, and you can even locate through the models, other attractions in the vicinity of the Palace. At the plenary session, the state deputies create, debate and vote state laws. The sessions take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays of the 3:00 pm 6:30 pm and are open to the public. On the left is the Noble Gallery, where they are accommodated, other States, political authorities and guests and to the right is in the old press Tribune today is no longer used for this purpose, since the journalists attending the House began to settle in the Popular Gallery. The space before intended the press came to be used by employees of the House. The plenary, which has about 240 seats for having previously been the headquarters of the Federal Chamber, today has only 70 chairs used by State representatives. The number of chairs cannot be modified because it's historical heritage. The biggest Chair is used by the President of the CHAMBER and the other to your back are used by advisors and secretaries during the sessions. The screens are used to register the members present, absent and on leave. The proheto of the "agenda" is registered on the big screen, as well as the members who voted for or against. As regards architecture and artistic part, we should pay attention to the leaves and berries contained in marbles, wooden doors and paintings, referencing the coffee and historical context of politics Latte, when São Paulo and Minas chose who would be candidates, but Rio de Janeiro had a very strong political and economic role. The expression "LEX" found in various boards and paintings that decorate the environment, comes from Latin and means "LAW", being represented there for being a house designed to create and vote on LAWS. The ceiling paintings, executed by the brothers Rodolfo and Carlos Chambelland tell a little of the history of Brazil. The first painting depicts the arrival of the Portuguese to Brazil, with the figure of Pedro Alvares Cabral and the flag of the Portuguese Crown, each painting following the sequence represents a historic moment, ending with the painting that represents the proclamation of the Republic. This last figure, appear the characters of Deodoro da Fonseca who was the first President of the Republic and Floriano Peixoto was the second. The figure of "Mariane" was a symbol created during the French Revolution to symbolize the Republic, being represented in various places in the world and in Brazil is the female figure that appears on some Real notes and the newer notes says "Republic" referencing her. Front painting, designed and executed by artist Elisha Viscount, depicts the moment of the first Constitution of the Republic of Brazil. The library works for queries daily, being open to the public only for consultation on site, it is not possible to take books home.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
