I recommend anyone to come here while visiting Rio. Here you can see old buildings, the forest, and even monkeys which will come to the ground! Great for family's as well. It's huge and there's a lot of areas to hike to.

Yes, it`s not perfect, the maintenance is not that great, but it`s beautiful and worth it! On sundays it gets a little too croud, so, if you have the chance to go during week days you won't regret! Kids love it; lots of green, a nice aquarium and some caves and hiking. Perfect for some pic nic! It also houses... More

It's a lovely outdoor botanical garden with quaint cafe that is a must try experience as well. The cafe is open for breakfast and picturesque. Bring a picnic for the family or a romantic moment, or a quiet walk alone.

Parque Lage was one of the places I was desperate to visit whilst in Rio and nothing could have prepared more for just how much I was going to fall in love. Firstly, the park all around the mansion is just beautiful, but walking up the steps and inside the mansion was just breathtaking!! The sun shone down, sparkling off... More

Not too far from Jardim Botanico is this beautful park where you find a cafe, a school of art, art exhibition, an aquario and nature at its best.

I stayed with friends living near here, they suggested this place for lunch and a mooch about on my first day alone. It didn't disappoint. I found the Corcovado trail and looked it up on TripAdvisor to check it out... It said there was a trail from the Parque Lage, up to the Corcovado and that it was hard. Great... More

This is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Rio de Janeiro. If you, like me, use the bus system, find one that takes the Jardim Botanico street and ask to be dropped by Parque Lage. The trails are fantastic, the gardens are lovely, and the school of art is around the water in the house. Beautiful photos... More

..give yourself a few hours to get lost in this park. I grabbed a small bite in the cafe before wandering through the paths and then spent a few hours wandering about. The food in the cafe is organic and delicious, and the park itself is full of beautiful plants, water falls and monkeys.

A friend of mine gave me a tip to have breakfast at Parque Lage during our trip to Rio. It was a very nice historical building with artist works on display. The breakfast was good. Because it was fall/winter (1st week of June) the garden was not as beautiful as it would normally would be but it was still a... More
