Fodor's Review

The city's only example of the neo-Gothic style of Portuguese inspiration, this building was erected in 1914 to house the first legislative assembly of the capital as well as the public library. In 1997 it was granted the status of state heritage site and was transformed into a cultural space. Local art exhibitions often take place, and the Centro de Referência da Moda (Fashion Reference Center) is located here.
