  The Brazilian Embassy
by pili

Favorite thing: With a marvelous mansard roof, people say that this embassy is a nice copy of the Jacquemart-Andre Museum on Boulevard Haussmann in Paris. It was built in the 1920's by the Peredas, one of several Argentine families who visited Europe and made copies of the buildings they liked most when they returned.
Regrettably, the Brazilian ambassador's residence is only open to the public for tours on rare occasions.-

Se dice que este edificio es una buena copia del Jacquemart-Andre Museum ubicado en el Boulevard Haussmann en Paris. Fue construido en los años 20 por los Pereda, una de las muchas familias que visitaron Europa y a su regreso construyeron edificios que eran copia de los que más le habían gustado.-
Lamentablemente, la embajada brasilera está abierta al público para visitas guiadas, en raras ocasiones.-
