Palacio Rio Negro

Interesting and well maintained building. Totally open to the public and provides a taste of some history. Interesting, but not a must see.

The most beautiful part of this building in my opinion, were the beautiful stairs that was built in this house. It was my understanding that the wood was cut in the Amazon, shipped to Portugal, the stairs built in Portugal, then shipped back to the residence to be installed.
