This place was incredible. The architecture and placement at the bottom of the mountain will leave you in awe. Great for pictures! A Rio must

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.

First the building has an interesting history, also it is very pretty. The park is beautiful. There was a tribe of Brazilian Indians launching a book of natural remedies and medicines from The Amazon. They were teaching about their way of life and an Indian house had been built in the gardens. I lestened to a lecture and did some... More

Beautifully located in the middle of the forest close to the Botanical garden in Rio. They serve a simple but ok breakfast inside the historical building just by the fontain/pool. Great for a slow walk through the tropical forest park, watching exotic plants and if you're lucky spot tucanos and curious monkeys. Highly recommended.
