Abstract (in English)

The Catete Palace, formerly the residence of Antonio Clemente Pinto, Baron of Nova Friburgo and a wealthy coffee planter, was projected and built by Gustav Waehneldt, a German engineer. Work on the building was commenced in 1858 and continued until 1867, with renowned artists taking part in the construction. The edifice was sold in 1890 to the "Companhia Grande Hotel Internacional", and was transferred in 1896 to the Bank of the Republic of Brazil, becoming on that same year the property of the Federal Union for the purpose of housing the Governrnent of the Republic, a function which it continued to serve until 1960. The premises were declared a National historical and artistic monument, under the terms of Process N° 153-T and N° 181- T , Historical Record Book, page 3, registered under n° 7, and Fine Arts Record Book, page 5, registered under n° 20, both entries dated April 6, 1938.
