Grand Govenor's Palace

Another stop on our tour. Though unable to go inside, we walked around this grand building. Truly amazing architecture. A jewel in her time as now. Worth a stop and see.

The building is nice, the guides are friendly, but all in all there is not very much to see. A tour takes maybe a good half hour. It is a bit out of the way, more or less a 30 minute walk from town center. There are more exciting options, however, a visit is not wasted time.

We picked up a booklet from the Tourist Office for what to do in Manaus. Palacio Rio Negro was supposed to be open op Sundays Unfortunately the security was able to tell that this was not the case in several months. So a huge disappointment. Especially because of Carnaval a lot of musea were closed for several other reasons

It is a simple building, whose location does not help much to appreciate it. Its surroudings, with an interesting park, makes it worthy a visit.

Two floors of fantastic exhibits! It's free to explore but a guide will greet you at the different room exhibits.

I found this building, the former Governor's Palace, interesting and accessible. Like the Opera House, the Palace was built during the Rubber Boom. The two-toned hardwood floors are similar, as is the architecture, although more residential and less sumptuous. If you're interested, as I am, in the intricacies of local Brazilian history, there's a lot to see here, with printed... More
