I passed by it, when my private tour guide and I walked towards Praça Quinze. I saw a group of young men and women in navy blue uniform coming out of the main door and taking photos.

Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born.
With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
proof that the old and the new can live together
