Boa Vista Palace
Campos do Jordão, São Paulo, Brazil
The Boa Vista Palace is situated at the top of the Mantiqueira Mountains in Campos do Jordão. Historically, it was the former governor’s official winter residence and in 1969 a group of experts selected additional furniture, paintings, sculptures, tapestry, and art objects to build the palace collection so that today it functions as a palace-museum open to the public displaying Brazilian historical furniture and art. In 1970, the building hosted the first edition of the current Campos do Jordão International Winter Festival. Throughout its 50 years, the palace has become an icon of the state cultural life.
