Most people here are in the middle of a business day, though, and hardly have time to notice the masterpieces in front of their eyes... Photo by Silviano for www.ipanema.com. All rights reserved.

Walk around the building and pay attention to the details, like the beautiful box offices, staircase, marble floors, and dozens of statues inside and outside. Do not miss the chance of watching a classical perfomance, opera, or ballet at the Municipal.

Palacio Pedro Ernesto around Cinelândia is the headquarters of the City Council. There's always something happening below, and many people never pay attention to the two beautiful pulpits above. Photo by Silviano for www.ipanema.com. All rights reserved. Todos os direitos reservados.

The palace is currently under renovations, and we hope to see it shine in all its glory pretty soon. The building next door, famous for Cafe Amarelinho on the ground floor, is also being completely renovated inside, while the façade is being carefully restored.

They are adorned with beautiful images in carved wood, original Portuguese tilework, and lots of details in gold leaf. Take your time, stop and meditate in the peaceful atmosphere.
