Alfândega, literally meaning "Customs House," was built as far back as 1906, and is known for being the first building in Brazil to be built with stone blocks. With raw materials brought from England, this building stands tall as one of the major landmarks of Manaus. With quaint archways and intricate carving, its medieval Renaissance architecture makes it a major attraction for hoards of tourists. The tall tower and the lighthouse that looks like a turret complete the aesthetic circle of the building.
