Built at the very beginning of the Twentieth Century, the Biblioteca Nacional is Brazil´s most important library. The entrance is free and that allows you to have a glimpse of the huge and beautiful inside structure.
Very good free guided tour in English! Beautiful inside of the historical building, inaugurated in 1910, and impressive architecture, with staircases, wide skylights in colored stained glass, elegant ornamentation and preserved rooms, beyond the works of art that decorate the spaces, as pictures, panels and sculptures. In the corridors, in the heritage rooms and in the Cultural Space Eliseu Visconti... 更多

There is scaffolding up all over the front of the building, but don't let this put you off - it's open as usual! The lady on the tours desk only spoke Portuguese, but we managed to work out that there is an English tour at 1pm each day. There were only 3 people on our tour and it was well... 更多
If you enjoy architecture and history or just appreciate beauty you will love this library!! close by the Teatro Municipal ... in downtown Rio. Also, you can go there before or after Santa Teresa area( a MUST go if you visit Rio. Very historical buildings and great restaurant!! )
BEAUTIFUL architecture inside. Just the photo moment of the two sided staircase with wrought iron railings makes it worth it. They dont let you into most of the rooms but it is worth going and taking a look.
There are guided tours but because of the time we decided to walk around it on our own, it was worth it! There are a couple of rooms with expositions, my favorite part were the glass ceilings, beautiful and impressive!
Every two hours you can do a tour inside this beautiful place. They speak in english and spanish, but you can't go inside on you own. Is worth the visit.
The Biblioteca Nacional is a grand building in the downtown/ Centro area of Rio. It is worth a visit while you tour the area and should not be missed. The inside is quite beautiful too and there is a huge amount of history to learn here. Recommended!
