Joao V built this huge castle for his passion, hunting!It took 23 years to build and there were almost 50000 workwers employed to do the job. 2000 of them died. The state was almost bankrupt at completion of this castle and most of it was financed by the colony Brasil. It is 40,000 squre meters large. You feel lost inside! It is so huge that I was bored looking at all the rooms, the library of which has some 50000 books!
