Rio Branco Palace, Salvador

(260+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
An imperious yet ornate construction, Rio Branco Palace makes no concessions to minimalism. Lovers of architecture will swoon at the immaculately preserved neoclassical, French-style façade that conceals an elegant, refined interior harking back to the colonial era of Brazilian history. Formerly a barracks and a prison, the building has undergone several reconstructions over the years--the most recent being in 1984--and is of cultural importance to both Salvador and the wider Bahia region. With our online itinerary creator, Salvador attractions like Rio Branco Palace can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • It is a building that housed the headquarters of the Government of Bahia. Today it is a Museum, with several pieces that tell the story of the State administration and a wonderful view.

  • Upon exiting the Elevator Lacerda, the first sight is the Palacio do Rio Branco. Only one building with a peculiar beauty.

  • Like any monument of Salvador, is beautiful and is damaged. But worth knowing these icons of architecture.

  • Local muito lindo
  • Vale a pena a visita
