The palace is beautiful but that is all. You can visit the entrance hall of the building. It is always opened in business times.

This is an empty building with lots of history. The walls are covered with events in early Brazil history. There is a small gift shop and tours are provided if asked for. Great place to relax if your walking around and need a break.
