Discover the stories behind this iconic, glamorous Brazilian beachfront hotel - its cinematic views, star-studded guests, legendary parties and chic carnival.
This sumptuous coffee table book tells the legendary story of the Copacabana Palace Hotel. From its extraordinary beginnings to the contemporary and stylish destination it is today. Thematic chapters and stunning photographs explore how the hotel has been part of Rio de Janeiro life for 100 years - from its opening in 1923, when few other buildings were around, to the golden age of Hollywood glamour, to the extraordinary free concert the Rolling Stones gave on Copacabana beach in 2006 (with more than 1.5 million visitors) and beyond.
Affectionately called "the Copa" by cariocas (locals) and guests alike, the hotel is known for events such as the carnival balls in February and New Year's Eve festivities, when everyone flocks to Copacabana beach. Events and stories like these are covered in this stylish book, which also includes specially commissioned photography that showcases the hotel's stunning cinematic views, stunning design and extraordinary guests.
Capturing the magic of one of the world's most fabulous destinations, this table-top book is a story about people and a culture of both old-fashioned elegance and contemporary flamboyance.
