Catete Palace

9.1/10

The Catete Palace (Palácio do Catete) is an urban mansion in Rio de Janeiro's Flamengo neighborhood. The property (several buildings and a large garden) stretches from Rua do Catete to Praia do Flamengo.

From 1894 to 1960, it was Brazil's presidential palace and the site of Getulio Vargas' suicide. It now houses the Museu da República (Museum of the Republic) and a theatre. The Catete underground rail station is adjacent.
