  Candido Mendes Building by RTL
by RafaelTheSecond

Modern and intelligent buildings are placed all over the city centre, some of them in wrong places, this huge modern buildings is right beside a 300 hundred years convent, and the area between the 70s and the 80s were not so correctly preserved!

Close by you can see the Royal and Imperial Palace, known in Rio as PAÇO IMPERIAL, the famous and historical PRAÇA 15, the oldest street of rio, Rua Primeiro de Março, the House of the Representatives, Palacio Tiradentes, The Valentin Monument, land mark of the first harbour in Rio....this icon of modernity is right built surrounded by the main samples of our National History....so I am sorry, it should not be there, as it is, we have to admit it is a beautiful one, and one of the highiest in the city, it is the EDICIFIO CANDIDO MENDES..You will find it in Assembleia Street.
