It's just a statue. Nothing to get excited about! It's just a statue. Nothing to get excited about! It's just a statue. Nothing to get excited about! It's just a statue. Nothing to get excited about!

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.

Cool statue of Brigitte Bardot. Good for a quick 5 minute photo opportunity to prove you were in Buzios. interestingly, her outfit still looks quite fashionable after all these years!

A nice place to take a picture in the Bardot walkboard. There are many nice restaurants nearby and Buzios Internacional Apart hotel too.

This is a must stop spot for a picture with the famous bronze statue of Brigit Bardot, the one who helped the place boom after her visit
