Go to the second floor to see the chambers of the old Supreme Court. Beautiful in their own right, but off to the side there's an exhibit with videos on the periods of judicial change throughout the country's history. An interesting and timely education.

This was another historical building facing Cinelândia. There was yet another roadwork going on in front of the building. I didn’t have time to go in to see its interior, but saw it only from the square.

This beautiful little building is worth a visit if you're around Cinelândia. Before the capital of Brazil was transferred to Brasília, this was one of the places where Supreme Court Justices would meet. Nowadays, it works as a cultural center and hosts not only exhibitions, but also lectures on different subjects (not only Law). I recommend you visit this cultural... More

Located on Cinelandia, right across the Municipal Council building, the Municipal Theater, the National Library, all gems of the early 20th century. They hold lectures and exhibitions, but the building in itself is worth the visit. Lovely hardwood parquet floors, high ceilings, lovely stairways with stained glass windows and a very nice cafe right at the entrance.

It's a little nice place at Cinelándia, right in front of the Metro station. This cultural center holds interesting lectures and beautiful exhibitions that I recommend. Bring your camera and have a delicious coffee at the cafeteria, it was one of the best I had in Rio. You won't expend a lot of time in here but you can visit... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
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 harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.
