For architecture and garden lovers

An old colonial-style villa and small but beatiful garden. There are also commanding views of the Christ the Redemptor. What's not too like.

The Parque Lage is a very beautiful park to chill, walk or make a picnic. It's not big and great photos are guaranteed!

Adoro o parque Lage! É muito bonito, cheio de história e natureza e que possui trilhas para todas as idades ou níveis de dificuldade. É um ótimo lugar para se conhecer um pouco da mata Atlantica, fazer um pic nic, andar ou simplesmente relaxar num local fresco. Por ser gratuito e de fácil acesso recomendo o parque para todos.

Same like the Jardim Botanico but this park is at least under maintenance. So if you must plan the hot spots of Rio you could do just more interesting thing except you're really interested in plants.

Went there working for Multiplicidade festival. What an adventure! Even the rain and cold weather did not ruin the mood! The shows were great and everyone was very happy.

A nice stop to relax and enjoy the beautiful estate on the edge of the national forest. If it's not busy, having a bite to eat at the restaurant inside while art students run around..a charming retreat.

It is beautiful, although a bit abandoned, mainly in what refers to the beautiful colonial italian-style house that has become a school of arts. Brunchs are nice and usually crowded.

You can admire the fantastic old house, surrounded by beautiful gardens. If you walk to a higher place , you have a marvelous and magic place and going on higher, you can even go to Corcovado.

This is a serene place to stop and visit, or take an art class, or sketch or have a snack in the low key snack bar. I loved the feel of the place where my grandida took an art class. A reflecting pool juxtaposes a view of the mountains. Great spot for a cup of coffee.

Great place for a leisurely walk to enjoy the tropical vegetation of Brazil's Atlantic coast. The gardens were designed and built in 1840. There are several old and picturesque building on the grounds. The vegetation is quite beautiful and there are numerous excellent views of the Corcovado (Christ the Redeemer) from the garden. And if you are adventurous (and in... More
