Love that skylight! I'm guessing it would originally have had a travelling gantry for cleaning and maintenance.


The Brazilian National Library is impressive. But it is not the prettiest in the city (inside). This is the 'Real Gabinete Português de Leitura'.

Well, this is the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (or 'FIOCRUZ'), the most important center of biomedical research in Brazil (with the Butantan Institute, in Sao Paulo) .

This place is an unusual area of ​​the city of Rio (for tourists), but , for me, is the most exotic place in Rio (for its architecture) .

There is a beautiful park with museum, library (very beautiful) and the central castle.
