  Palácio Amarelo
by besbel

This palace is near Museu Imperial. In front there is a beautiful roundabout, with the representation of an eagle on the border of the pilet of water. The eagle is the symbol of Petropolis, and it is present also in its emblem.
Since it is the headquarters of the Municipal Chamber of Petrópolis from 1897, tourist cannot get in to admire the inside, which is said to be an artistic jewel. But we could learn that it was built by the Chamber in the end of S. XIX as a "last remedy" to evict an aristocrat that lived exactly in the front, and for whom the presence of the Palace was a disturbance for the sight.

Address: Praça Visconde de Mauá, 89
Directions: Downtown, almost in front of Museu Imperial
