Petrópolis Things to Do: 57 reviews and 98 photos
This huge building was built in 1944, in what looks like a bavarian style, as a casino and is vast. It covers an area of 50,000m2, has 6 floors, 440 apartments, 13 large halls and conference rooms - one of which, the Maua Great Room, is 30m high and 50m in diameter which is used for orchestral performances. So large is it that you are meant to hear your voice echo 14 times!
The palace was the largest casino in the whole of South America when gambling was allowed in Brazil but shortly after the palace was built, it was outlawed. Since then the building hosts congresses, conventions and other large scale events.
Address: Av. United States, 2
