NileGuide Expert tip:
If you're taking a trip into Tijcua National Park, ask the tour guide if they can make a stop here
Hidden among the mountains and jungle of Tijuca National Park, this 18th Centutry former mansion home looks somewhat at odds with its jungle surrounds.
Outside, waterfalls and sculptures make eye-catching displays, while inside this colonial building houses some impressive exhibits of clothing, jewelry and other artefacts that once belonged to the wealthy coffee plantation owners that lived in the area.
