Palace is fairly small. Built ~50 years ago with lovely wood parquet floors (so closed when raining to avoid damaging floors...). Worth visiting if a fan of Brazilian art. Otherwise, see the views from the cafe and skip the tour.

Good view and excellent to take pictures. Very clean and organized! You don't need a ticket. The only problem is that you can't take pictures inside of the house.

Go on a nice day as the view is great. At the moment part of the Palace is under reform so the most interesting art works cant be seen. But all in all it is worth the visit. Rest rooms are next to the entrance....More

Very interesting place, it is the building that used to be the residency and office of the governor in wintertime. Although not a really old (50 years or so) or very big building, it was built to resemble european palacettes and fit in the european...More

the tours take place in groups of 25 people, no need to make reservations. A little queue on the weekends but the groups go every ten minutes. You get to see many art pieces from Tarsila do Amaral and others. Also it is possible to...More
