Every time I go here I promise I'll go more. It's a beautiful, special place, the architecture and park under the mountains will leave you in awe and it's a great place to spend a Sunday: go for brunch and/or a picnic and walk in the park! A must for anyone visiting Rio!

Go early, weekdays better, to avoid the worst of the tourist mass descending on this special place. Watch out for the monkeys coming to steal your breakfast or a neighbours camera. A must for any trip to Rio. You can take a steep walk up Corcovado from here, which must be accompanied by an (often armed) guard.

It's a good place to go with your family or alone, doesn't matter. It's an option than the Jardim Botânico (Botânicos´s garden), It has space with a very beautiful space with many kinds of trees, flowers and you can see some animals, like monkeys. You don't pay anything to walk there, just to eat something and the breakfast is something... More

There are not many things to do there, but it's nice to walk around the grounds, and take pictures inside by the pool area. An ideal thing to do on a relaxed afternoon, when there is no rush. The building itself is gorgeous, and has a nice story behind it (look it up ;) ). There's also an art school... More

There are no many things to do there, but the building and its inner, as well as its garden are very traditional to see the culture of Rio andto have a good time in couple.

My friend raved about taking me to Parque Lage for a lovely brunch. While the buildings themselves are gorgeous and the centre fountain is so beautiful the little cafe inside was a terrible shame. The service was just awful. Nothing was served in a decent timely manner. In fact the two of us ate literally at different times since the... More

There are plenty of stops for scenic vistas in Rio: Sugarloaf, Cristo, etc. Parque Lage is altogether different. Built as a mansion by a Brazilian businessman to impress his Italian wife, romance still abounds on the grounds of this park. Walk through gardens that barely hold nature at bay: there are plenty of bridges and paths and follies. The building... More

Wild nature, more so than in the botanical gardens. Best spot to have breakfast in Rio, just make sure you go early, or be ready to wait in line! Def worth it though!

Classical Park in the Heart of Rio, but you shouldn't expect much. Been here since my childhood and the place hasn't been taken care of by whomever is responsible to keep the structure clean.
