Petrópolis Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum

Petrópolis, named "City of Peter" in honour of Emperor Pedro I of Brazil, was the summer residence of his son, then of the aristocrats of the court. Thanks to its enviable location at a high altitude, it enjoys much more clement summer temperatures than the capital, and thus attracts droves of Cariocas in search of cool climes. Come and wander about the streets, where you can take in the façades of the palaces and, if only for a moment, soak up their atmosphere by visiting the old Imperial Palace, now a museum.
