  • Nice architecture, free WiFi and lots of spots to read. Small expositions from time to time. Worth a visit!
  • Named after one of the Brazilian modernism biggest names is also one of the state main public library. It is second to none in Brazil. Unfortunately it is not 24/7 anymore, so check the hours. No parking nearby.
