Didn't know Bardot made Buzios famous!

You have to be getting on in years to remember Brigitte Bardot looking like this. The statue is preserving better than the flesh. There is room to sit beside her for a while.

Fascinating to see the lovely Brigitte Bardot seated statue Immortalised on the seafront in picturesque Buzios. Actually I sat by her side for a while.

Located at Orla Bardot, this is a tribute to the French actress who helped the city becoming famous in Brazil and in the world.

Nice brass statue of French Actress Brigitte Bardot by sculptor Christina Motta. She discovered the place in the 60's.

If you walk along the orla beach you will find it... nothing but a statue. It is not even something you can call art. It is not worthy.

After her visit in Buzios in the 60" she put Buzios on the World's map. Today everybody that visit Buzios stop at Briggitte Bardot's statue to make sure they do not leave Buzios with a picture with her statue. Thank you Miss Bardot,

one of those places you got to visit if you are in Buzios just because. Not really interesting or full of artistic value overall.

We couldn't resist this! We took a stroll before heading to the beach to have a look and take a picture. Lest us wondering how Brigitte Bardot rated a statue in Buzios :)

As a statue, it is a nice statue, but it does not look like Brigitte Bardot in her 20s at all. This is just a a marketing gimmick.
