Tiradentes Palace (Palácio Tiradentes) Tours

Tiradentes Palace (Palácio Tiradentes)
While it may be hard to pull away from Rio’s white sand beaches, there’s more to the vibrant Brazilian city than sand and Sugarloaf Mountain. One of those spots is Tiradentes Palace (Palácio Tiradentes), a soaring, concrete, exquisite palace that’s named for “Tiradentes,” a Brazilian revolutionary who was jailed while fighting for the nation’s independence. While his cell once stood on the very ground where the palace stands today, when the palace was constructed in 1926, it not only adopted the hero’s name, but was also built with sculptures atop the dome that represent independence. When standing in front of the spectacular palace and admiring from the outside, gaze upwards at the concrete, Corinthian columns rising 40 feet in height. Inside, paintings by Brazilian Rodolfo Chambelland accompany displays recounting the building’s modern political history. The palace was where the National Congress gathered until 1960, and is used today by Legislative Assembly of Rio de Janeiro. 

Practical Info

Tiradentes Palace is open Monday-Saturday from 10am-6pm, and on Sunday from Noon-5pm. Palace admission is free. 
Address: Centro, Rio Janeiro, Brazil
