"Petropolis" Petrópolis by solopes
Petrópolis Travel Guide: 120 reviews and 270 photos
It was winter, and that, probably, softened the contrast between the hot weather in Rio de Janeiro, and the cooler air of the mountains. The only thing we could notice was the dramatic difference in landscape and architecture. After several days "being" somewhere in Portugal, we arrived somewhere in France or Switzerland. The general look, the buildings, the gardens, everything demonstrated that this must have been a preferred place to European immigrants other from Portuguese.
But Portuguese history and culture was still strongly present. And we appreciated this getaway place, representing another look in the mosaic of Brazilian contrasts.
