The headquarters of Rio's fire brigade, Corpo de Bombeiros Militar do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (CBMERJ) is unlike any that you might have seen. Flaming red in color and with details picked out in silver, the sprawling building is oddly reminiscent of a Moorish palace. The landmark building adds a splash of color to this bustling neighborhood, and makes for a great photo opportunity.
