This building has a very interesting architecture and it is full of history. There is a tour guide who can help with all the information you need.

Not the type of building you expect in this quaint town in the middle of the Amazon but it surely reflects past glories.

Is right in the hearth of the city, a classic building! The area looks a bit desert in the weekends, and the area also doesn´t look like safe .

The palace was the government office and residence for many decades, was almost abandoned during the 1980´s and 90´s, and now it became a small museum where visitors can see images of the history, culture and archaeology of Acre, from the precolombian populations to the fight of Chico Mendes to preserve the forest.

Palácio Rio Branco is the most interesting sight of Rio Branco, a city with almost nothing to do or see. It is the state government seat and was built in the early years of the twentieth century. There you can learn a bit about the history of Acre.
