Rio Negro Palace (Palácio Rio Negro) Tours and Activities

star-5
49 Reviews
Free admission

Built in 1903 as the home of wealthy German rubber tycoon Karl Waldemar Scholz and then auctioned off after the decline of the Rubber Boom, the Rio Negro Palace (Palácio Rio Negro) served as the state capital and governor’s residence for many years until it was converted into a cultural center in 1997.

Today, the main house and its outlying buildings contain galleries and performance spaces, including a coin museum and a fine art gallery. Visitors are free to wander the house on their own (most exhibits are marked with English explanations), but the Palace also offers free docent-led tours -- well worth it for those with an interest in Brazilian history.

Our tour starts from your hotel from where we will head to the historical center of Manaus, you'll be able to see the facades of the buildings with the marks of neo classic style that was the look of Manaus during the rubber boom. Let's walk through an area called "the old Manaus" which can give a clear understanding of the wealthiest era that our region held. We'll visit a museum that used to be the city hall and gives us a good understanding of the history of the capital of the Amazonas state. We'll visit the Amazonas Opera House and understand how so many materials and artists were brought from Europe to the jungle to build a place that remains a symbol of this beautiful era. We'll head to the market complex to see the three buildings know as the banana market, the fish market and the municipal market, each holding its unique beauty. We'll visit also the Rio Negro Palace that was intended to be a rubber baron's house but ended up becoming the government's office.
