Come on people! You can't say you've been to Buzios and not seen this statue! I mean what if, one day in the future, someone else who's been there asked you, 'Did you see the statue of Brigitte Bardot?' You won't want to have to reply, 'No, I missed that,' do you? I regard it as a Must Do! 😀

It is a nice walk by the sea and the moment you face the statue you are surprise. Unfortunately for me it was not a nice surprise, because the statue has "bad taste" and it is not harmonized with the surrounding area. Has nothing from the "glamour" of BB and the specific period.

If you are not a enthusiatic of BB, why you will go to see one statue ? Ok, you are walking on the beach and found it. But go away to see the statue, it is not a program...

It was cool to see the statue as we walked along town by the water. It's a great walk and very scenic looking out over the marina and boats anchored. The statue itself ok and we were told you are supposed to get a picture of the statue while you are holding one of her breasts. Not sure where that... More

Just a statue of Brigitte, nothing too exciting, funny to take some pictures and that s set, it is located on a nice walking path along the sea but clearly not a must see

The statues of the 3 fishermen along the bay are far more impressive. I can understand why the local authority wanted to erect the Bardot statue, but it is hardly an attraction

It is a very nice reminder of what that area was some years ago. It is nice to think how the humans can ruin a piece of paradise.

I am honestelly not a big fan of statues, so it wont make a real difference to be here, unless you are a fan and want to take a pictuere, it is easy to get to since it just on rua das pedras.
