"Petropolis." Petrópolis Tip by cachaseiro
Petrópolis, Rio de Janeiro: 6 reviews and 10 photos
Petropolis is a very pleasant place to visit for a day when in Rio.
It´s situated up in the mountains and is therfor cooler than rio, so if you get too hot in rio you have an option of cooling down there.
Because of it´s climate it has been a favorite spot for the brazilian upper class over the years and when Brazil had a king the royal family spend a great deal of time there.
There is a very good museum about the brazilian royal family in petropolis that is certainly worth visiting.
Apart from that Petropolis has a lot of colonial architecture that is worth having a look at and it´s in general just a very pleasant place.
