The palace area was amazing and had an open view of the Cristo Redentor stature. We were told that the top floor was unable for regular visitors, which dampened our spirits. The restaurant/bar that was inside left much to be desired. The coffee drinks were not very good.

My husband and I planned to hike to Christ the Redeemer starting at Parque Lage. We had a little trouble getting to Parque Lage. Our language skills are lacking and our cab driver assumed we meant we wanted to go up on the cogwheel train or a van. So we had a bit of a search to get to the... More

Inside the old building, operates a school of arts. From there, you can see the Corcovado mountain and take a nice photo from the water mirror. Doing a small walking, you can reach the small grotto, with some aquariums. The area outside the building is full of trees and you can spend some time relaxing and thinking about life!

I visited here in mid November. The park is very beautiful, although not as well kept as it could be. There's a fair bit of litter and damage to paths etc. The staff at the entrance weren't very friendly but I'd recommend lunch in the cafe (see separate review). The view of Christ the Redeemer is amazing, as is the... More

Not sure why this place doesn't get all the attention needed for the cool charm it has and the views of Christ the Redeemer from here. Rightly called the "Taj Mahal of Rio". Has a very romantic charm to the old styled building and the cafe inside made us stay longer enjoying the peaceful of the site. The grounds are... More

This is a kind of place to go for a stroll, relax, ready a book and have a nice sandwich. Solo or with a good friend, it's definitely a place to meditate, relax and enjoy the magnificent architecture of the main house.

This park in the heart of Rio de Janeiro is a piece of Atlantic Forest inside the city. There are plants that represent this forest and little birds that make beautiful the landscape.

Beautiful and large park with great hiking trails, cool buildings, a stunning cafe and more than a few cool families of monkeys. We visited to take the hike to Corcovado and Christ the Redeemer - a high recommend.

this is truly a great place to relax and enjoy with the whole family. They have a very good cafe and an amazing area for running, playing, pic nic...you just name it. Better to arrive early on Sundays because CARIOCAS love to go there too.

A little tired and run down with bits of rubbish scattered around. Some quaint features like little turrets and a natural aquarium, but not really somewhere to spend more than an hour. Nearby Jardim Botanico is more impressive - although you'd hope so as it charges entry (parque lage is free)
