Curiosities

Popular music

The caricaturist Nair de Teffé, married President Marshal Hermes da Fonseca, used to promote evening gatherings in Catete Palace. In one, in 1914, was played the composition "Cuts-Jaca" Chiquinha Gonzaga. Was much criticised at the time, by bringing to the Government Palace, popular music originating in ordinary and second dances lascives, the conception of the social elite.

Piers in the garden

The Counselor Mayrink built a pier to dock your yacht in Praia do Flamengo, at the entrance of the Park. The wharf became the exclusive use of the Presidency of the Republic, throughout the period during which the Catete was the seat of Government until the construction of the Aterro do Flamengo, in 1960, when it was demolished.

Eagles Palace

Two iron Eagles, at the top of the building, gave the Catete Palace the nickname of Eagles Palace. They had been replaced by statues of the muses representing summer, autumn, justice, and others. In 1910, the artist Rodolfo Bernardelli carved new bronze Eagles.

Suicide of Getúlio

The President Getúlio Vargas committed suicide with a shot in the heart, in 1954, in presidential lodgings on the third floor of the Palace.

Architecture and Gardens

The Catete Palace was designed by architect Gustav Waehneldt; and the gardens by the landscape gardener Paul Villon.

Description

Republic Museum

Inaugurated in November 15, 1960 by President Juscelino Kubitschek, the Museum is installed in the Catete Palace, which was the seat of Government and official residence of the Presidents of the Republic until the country's capital to Brasilia.

The Museum has as its object the history of the Republic in Brazil – that is dedicated to preserving, studying, researching and disclosing. This includes the Palace itself where is installed. But the institution also has commitments to propose reflections on what happens today.

The Museum houses exhibitions – temporary and long-term – and cultural events.

The visitor has a complete picture of the history of Brazil Republic. Works of art from the 19th and 20th centuries, photos, documents, furniture and objects comprise the acquis, exposed in the halls of the Palace.

Catete Palace

The Palace was built in 1858, for housing of the coffee grower Antônio Clemente Pinto, Baron of Nova Friburgo (who lived there until 1867). Later, belonged to the Great International Hotel Company and Advisor Francisco de Paula Mayrink.

The Palace became the seat of the Presidency of the Republic in April 18, 1896, during the tenure of President Prudente de Moraes.

The Catete was the scene of important political events.  Among them, the Declaration of war on Germany in 1917; and the axis in 1942. The deployment of the Cruise as new national monetary system; the hosting of Cardinal Pacelli, in 1934, the future Pope Pius XII. The death of President Afonso Pena, in 1909; and the suicide of President Getúlio Vargas, in 1954.

On the ground of the Palace there is a beautiful garden, open to the public.

Catete Palace

In Rio, lovers of history, politics or outdoor spaces, certainly think in Catete Palace one of his favorite places. Stage of striking events of the politics of our country – the space was home to the Executive power of 1897 to 1960 –, where resided dozens of Presidents and where he killed himself Getúlio Vargas, the Palace is today a tourist attraction, bustling cultural center and home to many cariocas's backyard. What is there is no shortage of reasons to visit the Palace!

When, in 1960, Brasília became the federal capital and political center of the country, Juscelino Kubistchek retired from the activities of the Catete Palace turning it at the Museum of the Republic. Preserving the memory of this period, the Museum has an extensive collection of photos, objects, furniture, publications and works of art of the time, while providing for public visitation presidential quarters as the fourth of Getúlio Vargas and the ministerial salon, where big political decisions were made. Exhibitions, music events, lectures and workshops also have time on there, as well as a charming café and a 90-seat cinema room, which displays art films and receives important festivals. How about?

Designed by the same hands that have also signed the Candelária Church, in the Centre, the Palace of Catete, at first glance, draws attention for its neoclassical architecture facade, that borders on the sidewalks in the neighborhood of the same name. However – and it may seem – exaggeration to say that called attention is not the beautiful building, which turns the vast green area close to supporting that hides. Enhanced by beautiful gardens, the most we like to enjoy is the huge expanse of gardens, full of large trees centenaries hearts – and therefore delicious shadows-cut down by lakes, bridges and gazebos, grottoes, as well as cast iron sculptures and a beautiful Fountain. Frequently, capoeira, the bands new music scene and even circus shows-always free-fall in the graces of the beautiful gardens and packing, on many mornings and Sunday tardinhas, a loyal following, passionate and animated.

Residents of the neighborhood and various corners of the city gather, especially on weekends, to enjoy this Pearl, this small lung carioca. With huge portal that gives access to the gardens by the Flamengo Beach, the area becomes party primarily for children, who have fun on the playground or ride in intense recreational activities. Banks offer quiet shadow to read a book, talk, listen to music on headphones and think: "how beautiful this city!" Rendezvous with the family, with half of its orange, with friends or with yourself. Worth the visit!


Services:

The museum works to wed Friday of 10:0 at 16:30 h, and on weekends and holidays, from 11:0 to 17:30. The gardens run daily from 8:0 to 6:0 pm.
