Its stunning neoclassical headquarters in Rio de Janeiro dates back to 1853. The splendor of the interior and exterior details, colored stained glass windows and the ceiling covered with paintings reveal the glamour of this architectural ensemble, national heritage since 1938.
In its 2 units in Rio de Janeiro and Brasilia, the National Archives safeguard about 55 km of text documents; 1.74 million photographs & negatives, 200 photo albums,4k cartoons and drawings,3k posters, 300 drawings and 20k illustrations,as well as maps, films and sound recordings

When considering major issues such as global climate and environment, we find it very important to establish solid facts regarding Brazil’s track record and strong sustainable development credentials.
Firstly, 60% of Brazilian vegetation is primeval; it is now as it has been since time immemorial, and as it was in the time of the European settlers. These well-established figures are acknowledged by the World Bank, OECD and the UN Food and Agriculture Organization. Image
Brazil also has some of the strictest environmental laws in the world, which allows for the protection of the Amazon and the other diverse biomes of our country. For this reason, Brazilian farmers can never touch 20% of their own lands, or even up to 80% in forested areas. Image
