What fun!!

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 :)

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

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.

We were looking for a statue for a two days but haven't found it. It was taken away for some renovation. Instead of the Bardaut we found only one big suitcase and VISA plate next to it. We were disappointed!!!!

Bardo only visited here twice so not sure the locals are in awe of her memory! We love Buzios so would urge you to visit.

She symbolises something to the people of Buzios but this statue is otherwise pretty uninteresting. It's right on the main strip about 50 or so metres from the pier, so you'll undoubtedly see it, and as you can see from the pictures, it's been pretty strongly manhandled...

You can sit on her lap, leg, or beside her on a bronze memorial placed on the seawall about 50 yards from the Buzios pier. No charge. It is worth the 15 minutes to pose with her.

twenty years ago residents were around who remember her walking surrounded by local children, always sweet stories regarding how nice she was, she was an icon of Buzios, and pertinent to its past...........great reminder to wear sunscreen!

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.
