Perched at an altitude of 809m in the heart of the Sierra Estrêla, the site of the emperors' former summer residence remains popular for its pleasant climate (23°C on average) and palaces. Tidy, flower-decked Petrópolis owes its mixture of architecture to the Italian, German and Portuguese communities who originally settled here. Far from a museum city, it is genuinely dynamic thanks to IT firms and a student population.
