A terrific visit, guided by Wesley in good English. He was knowledgeable, interesting and the palace is a fine place to learn about Espírito Santo and Vitória. It was a real bonus to have an English speaking guide who was so fluent, and so helpful.

When you see this building you must wonder what other beautiful buildings in Vitoria have been destroyed in the name of modernisation. This is a gem amongst the traffic and fumes of the city. I have only ever seen it from the outside but this...More
