Rio Branco Palace, Salvador
Categories: Architectural Buildings, Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
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.

Beautiful building with great views of the sea. Only one or two rooms are accessible with small exhibitions. The grand staircases and numerous other rooms not fulfilling their potential.
Beautiful, if you´re around here don´t miss it.

Muito bonito, com vistas incríveis na sacada. Pena que nem sempre todos os cômodos estão abertos, mas você pode se programar para ir nas visitas guiadas.
