Crystal Palace Tours

Petrópolis is as town that was originally founded upon royal opulence and wealth, and nothing says lavish, regal design than a building constructed of crystal. Today, the Crystal Palace is a large greenhouse that’s comprised mostly of glass, although the sparkly chandelier inside the building still has the crystal touch. 

Built in France and transported here to the hills outside of Rio, the palace was initially offered as a gift from Count D’Eu to Princess Izabel. For years this venue was used to host the royalty’s extravagant balls, and there are still concerts and opera events that are held in the palace today. If staying in Petrópolis, check the schedule of events for the palace to experience one of the shows. Or, if visiting on a day trip from Rio de Janeiro, wander around the manicured grounds that line the historic greenhouse—imagining life as a Brazilian Princess in a palace with crystal walls. 

Practical Info

There’s no admission fee to visit the Crystal Palace, which is located by Parca da Confluencia near the city center of Petrópolis.
