Manaus is known for a great many things... most notably the Amazon Forest but one thing that isn't well known is that it housed Brazil's first law school. The Palace of Justice's history of dealing justice is open for all to visit.

Just behind the Amazonas Theatre is this lovely building of classical architecture. Even if you can not get in, it's worth taking a look out!

The building is closed due to indecision as to what it can be used for. Really worth looking at the massive statue on the roof. It was commissioned from France to show a blind woman holding the balanced scales of justice. The rubber baron's had...More
