The history of Brazil-Cologne

Located in the Tomé de Souza Square (next to the Lacerda Elevator), in the Historical Center of Salvador, the Rio Branco Palace is a monument to the History of Brazil. The original building was constructed at the same time of the foundation of Salvador City in 1549, under the command of the first governor-general of Brazil, Tomé de Souza, and served as the General Government headquarter until 1763! From its first primitive construction of rammed earth to today, the Palace received members of the Portuguese royalty, hosted the Emperor D. Pedro I, Empress Leopoldina; and then Dom Pedro II and Empress Teresa Christina on their visit to Bahia in 1859. Invaded, bombed, burned, demolished and rebuilt, the Rio Branco Palace served different purposes and today is the headquarters of the Secretariat of Culture, also housing the Memorial of the Governors. A building full of history with magnificent and strategic view of the Bay of All Saints. You can take a guided tour and visit some rooms of the Palace and the Governors’ Memorial, but confirm the days and times of visitation not to miss this great trip through the History of Bahia and Brazil.
