The Imperial City of Petropolis in the State of Rio de Janeiro is the Brazilian equivalent to Tsarsko Selo, see the link to the Museu Imperial below:

There are many palaces in Petropolis, some belonging to the Orléans-Braganças and some belonging to various barons and other nobles. Presently, one branch of the Orléans-Braganças own the most famous historical palace remaining in private ownership, the Palais de Grão-Pará.

hello,

Does somebody has information on the imperial palaces of Brazil. I heard that the imperial family had a city palace in Rio de Janeiro, two palaces outside the city center in Sao Cristavao and Santa Cruz, and in Petropolis? Is this correct or were there more palaces or lodges? Does some one has pictures or plans or has other information?

Thanks,

ipflo

Do you have any picture of the mansion at Vassouras ?

I guess it's not exactly a palace but a manor house in a roça (plantation)
