Centro Cultural Correios Rio de Janeiro

The former administrative centre of the post office became a cultural hot spot after it closed for refurbishment in the 1980s, reopening in 1993 in its current guise.

An early nineteenth-century elevator runs between the three floors of exhibition and theatre spaces where you are as likely to encounter cutting edge cinema shorts as the next big thing in the visual arts.

Outside, the Praça dos Correios comprises approximately an area of 1,3 thousand m², with water mirrors and an acoustic shell for open air events.
