We have a few heritage sites to be able to be proud and to attract tourism because the historical attracts tourism, this is a fact.

Let this happen is extremely regrettable, mainly in the crisis we are going through”, regrets the Carioca who now lives in Castelo de Paiva, in Portugal.

This is the responsibility of the federal government. The government proved irresponsible. And now without fee will be?
