The statue is located in Bardot's promenade and it is funny when you get a picture with her. The sunset is awesome. You need to go there.

Not what the rest of the world thinks of as "Brigitte Bardot"... although this may be what she looked liked walking the streets of Buzios.

It's just a bronze statue sitting on a bench by the beach. You may pass by it in wandering the city, but it's a little outside of the city center; maybe 5-10 minutes walk. Unless you are Briget Bardot's biggest fan, I can't see any reason to go out of your way to see this. It's between city center and... More

Brigitte is long-gone, but her likeness remains as a testimony to her importance to Buzios. Often a wait to be photographed with her!

If you're in Búzios, it's compulsory to pay homage to the statue/figure of Brigitte Bardot, one of the responsible of the tourist boom of this place and of the conversion into a fashionable tourist spot. Be patient and follow the cue to take a picture with "Brigitte" as a tourist souvenir of the city!

Just a little bit of fun to make a few extra holiday snaps. She has some really shiny areas where people have sat on her knee and put their arms around her!

the statue is on main promenade, rua das pradas. while walking along the avenue, the bronze statue of bridget bardot (sitting on her suitcase) is a mini tourist attraction that people likes to take pictures. nothing special

Spend your time exploring the beaches. The statue... meh. Unless you know who Brigite Bardot is, then it's not a big deal. She find put Buzios on the map but if not her, then I'm positive someone else would have discovered this beautiful gem. Wear some insect repellent in Buzios, the misquitoes can be bothersome.
