At the first sight it looks just like the Trinity College Library in Dublin (see the photos here), but it’s not. This one is much smaller, less pretentious, but yet very photogenic. It is located in the Historic Museum of Campos dos Goytacazes, a town located on the north of the Rio de Janeiro State (Brazil), and where I was happily raised.
Brazilians in general don’t care too much about old things – museums are usually empty, libraries are abandoned and old buildings are easily replaced for skyscrapers. So I must say I felt extremely happy inside when I saw that this recently renovated museum was full of precious stuff and so well taken care.
