Casa Franca Brasil Tours

This architectural highlight was built in 1820 and once served as a customs house for the region. Today, Casa Franca Brasil is home to rotating exhibitions that showcase the nation’s political and cultural history. 

Travelers say the building is worth a visit because it’s an impressive example of neo-colonial architecture that’s anything but typical of Rio de Janeiro. And while the on-site restaurant offers some pretty delicious local eats, the gallery shows can be hit or miss. For this reason visitors suggest checking out the calendar before planning to venture inside. 

Practical Info

Casa Franca Brasil is located at Rua Visconde de Itaborai, 78 and is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. Entry is free.
