While not a great deal at at Cosme Velho it does provide some beautiful old homes as well as the railway station to get to Corcovado.

The Bairro Cosme Velho is a nice district in Rio. Located in Zona Sul, it is adjacent to Laranjeiras district. Essentially residential, it is a pretty neighbourhood - quiet and calm, lovely to walk around in. Recommended!

Nice, big, old houses, lots of gardens and green spaces, a neighbourhood that climbs up the hill and has nice views. It travels the visitor back in time, but I would suggest to walk to the top of Santa Teresa instead.

Great older neighborhood, however the nearby favela means burglarys are common. Nice for a drive through, some truly outstanding architecture from the days when Rio was the capitol of Brasil.

I like it so much... I've been living here for the last 30yrs... no plans no leave it, LOL Cosme Velho is the home of Corcovado Railway Station. It's a hell of a traffic jam every Summer weekend. But it's worth.

Like the Flamengo area, a place where you can catch a glimpse of old Rio. But there is really not much for tourists here.

This is the neighborhood where the train to the Corcovado mountain departs. Not much also to say about it.

The neighborhood where the Corcovado/Christ the Redeemer´s train station is situated is a n old and bucolic residential place, with some interesting architectural samples of colonial style, as well as gourgeous churches and squares as Largo do Boticario.
