Thank you for start the discussion samba_man!! Actually I've been to friend's home close to Itacoatiara, that is a fantastic beach, and didn't took more pictures, but I like very much these thread, that shows these both towns and a lot more: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1452936

First time viewing your thread, and I am completely stunned at your collection: yes, I know that both Niterói and Petrópolis are next-door neighbors to Rio de Janeiro, but your pics tell me, "seriously? Are those Niterói?" Those look extremely different from the city proper of Rio: grand houses, lots of greenery, horseback rides being a popular activity... It makes me think that I'm looking at a completely different city, if not metro region!

And by the way, the Quitandinha Palace in Petrópolis looks much more like a grand mansion than a palace (even though there is a tall watchtower that goes with it): what is it used for now? It seems like it is a very popular tourist attraction, with its spectacular greenery again and a large lake.

Splendid collection, my friend! Looking forward to even more pics from you!

Hi fieldsofdreams!!! These neighbourhoods in Niterói are really nice!!
The horses you've seen were in Petrópolis, where Quitandinha was a hotel-cassino in the fourties. Now its sallons and halls, as well as the lake and so are administrated by SESC, an instituction that provides good quality leisure and culture for the workers of the commerce - but its activities are for all, sometimes a little more expensive for the workers of other sectors. Its rooms and suites are now privete apartments! Take a look at the thread I recommended above, you´ll surelly like it!!
Thank you for your compliments!!
