Petropolis Remarkable Features
"Blue sky, clean air, nice weather and the sight of mountains create a perfect environment of tranquility. This climate has brought to Petrópolis, a city in the Mountain region of Rio de Janeiro, several writers and painters.

The city of Petrópolis is an ideal option for one weekend or more, since it is only at 60 km from the city of Rio de Janeiro and your customers could visit many museums that tell the history of the Imperial Brazil, in addition to walking by the city.

Emperor D. Pedro II constructed a palace for the summer vacations of the imperial family. Just after his arrival, all the important figures in the imperial court came to the city, filling the region with country mansions, rich furniture and beautiful gardens.

Today, all of these historic constructions are a big attraction, because besides the beauty, they tell a little on our history. The Imperial Museum, São Pedro de Alcântara Cathedral, Santos Dumont House, Quitandinha Palace, Rio Negro Palace, are some examples.

Petrópolis may have lost its political importance, but still has a strong tradition translated into the refinement of restaurants and inns. For this reason, it is worth enjoying at least a weekend in the city.

In the region, there is the Serra dos Órgãos National Park, where the impressive rocky formation called "Dedo de Deus" (God's Finger) is located. The trails and horse tours lead the tourist to discover a vast vegetation, orchid greenhouses, waterfalls, valleys and mountains that offer dazzling views."
