The Royal Portuguese Library Four Ceiling Corners, Rio MG_ 8976

Truly a hidden gem in Rio de Janeiro,  A must to see when in Rio.

It has a magnificent interior, its reading room having the full height of the building. It is surrounded by galleries for the bookshelves, all resting upon iron col- onnades decorated with neo-Gothic motifs.
