After several years visiting Boa Vista we decided to try the new hotel next door to our usual one. Whilst we had been happy with it the chance to go a new one was definitely worth it. The room was super and we had a...More

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.

We were taken a bit by surprise that this was a guided tour. There is no entry fee, but the tour is given in Portuguese.

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
