About this place

Ilha Fiscal is a smal picturesque island in Guanabara Bay. Even though the original name given to the island by the Portuguese was Ilha dos Ratos (Rat Island) the current name is owed to the fact that Fiscal Guard worked there.

A little castle built in neo-gothic style is situated on the island and it looks fairy-tale like. It is sepecially beautiful during night when many lights turn on. This castle was designed by Adolfo del Vecchio and it is the place where the last ball of the empire was held in 1889.

Today, the castle houses a small museum about Brazilian navy.

It is possible to reach the island either by boat or accross the causeway.
