Imperial Palace

The Imperial Palace has been the home and office of local governors, viceroys and emperors of Brazil since the 18th century, and now proudly shows off its prestigious past in the heart of the old part of Rio. Its colonial buildings are now home to a cultural centre. Only the façades are original in this venue that is now dedicated to contemporary art. Explore its galleries filled with temporary exhibitions of paintings, photographs, design, fashion and sculpture, and take the time to browse through some of the books in the peace and quiet of its library.
