I loved this place!! So much that I had to revisit on our last day. We explored the little caves, saw the little castle towers and the beautiful duck pond. We had breakfast and lunch at the cafe and it was just perfect with the view of the Christ Redeemer. We took many amazing pics here as it's just breathtakingly... More

Everywhere you look here there are beautiful plants and old buildings. We hiked the trail up to Corcovado from here and had a blast. Very neat old mansion with restaurant inside and amazing views of the mountains around.

We visited Parque Lage before going to the botanical garden and we really enjoyed this park. Very nice, clean park with a beautiful building inside. Also, there is a great view of the Christ and you can also see some monkeys here! Definitely worth the visit if you are in the area!

Parque Lage owns its name after one of its previous owners. Investing fact is that it was actually some sort of farm, when Rio wasn't so huge yet. Some sort of wooded refuge right next to the city. After seeing many of its previous owners going into bankruptcy, it was bought by the city and became a park. There is... More

It is a nice green spot in Rio. It has a historic country palace in roman stile. There is a nice walking track and the trail tô Corcovado hiking starts here.

A local recommend we visit this park when we asked for directions to nearby botanic gardens. It is wilder, with monkeys raiding the bin! It's free and lots of families with young children were enjoying small play area and picnicking. In middle of park is a very special and mystical building where artists were painting, while others enjoying food and... More

My first tuna in Rio for leisure couldn't start better with the breakfast at Parque Lage. Surrounded by nature, this historical place has a very good breakfast service. We have chosen the plage completo - breads, butter, jelly, yogurt, fruits, scrambled eggs. It's a very good size so it might serve 2 people. Besides you may order a cappuccino and... More

Dramatic almost theatrical building amongst the 'jungle' with a rich history provided by previous owners. Worth a visit.

We loved the Parque Lage, it was beautiful, tranquil and very relaxingto walk around. Additionally, near the Parque is this awesome coffee shop that is part of an art institute that I would suggest going there for breakfast. You get hearty pastries, a beautiful view and awesome coffee (you get awesome coffee all over Brazil but this setting was so... More
