Every time I come to Rio, I have to go to Gávea to visit this beautiful house, refurbished in Museum. First of all because of the house itself, from the 50sn and its garden designed by the maestro landscaper Roberto Burle Marx who worked on all the beautiful gardens in Brazil, together with the architecture of Oscar Neimeyer. The house was the property of the family Moreira Salles ( Walter Salles the film director is their son), and is now a wonderful modern art museum. The exhibitions are always unique and whatever you like modern art or not you have to visit this place filled with serenity. Also the cafeteria inside or around the pool surrounded by a tropical vegetation.
