Rio de Janeiro Sights

Palácio Tiradentes

Updated 09/30/2013

Fodor's Review

The Tiradentes Palace contains a permanent exhibit describing its history as the seat of the Brazilian parliament before Brasília was built in the late 1950s. Getúlio Vargas, Brazil's president for almost 20 years and by far the biggest force in 20th-century Brazilian politics, used the palace in the 1940s as a nucleus for disseminating propaganda. Tours are given in Portuguese, English, and Spanish.
