Beautiful gardens and the opportunity of viewing some small animals running around. Pay special attention to the lake with giants "Victoria's regias" and the centenarians palms that were brought and seeded by the last Portugal' s king in Brazil. If you have time, explore the many paths around the gardens. It's very much pleasant! Children love the place because they can run, discover nature and play. Don't forget your camera. Very nice and unusual places to take beautiful pictures.

What do you think of doing when you are tired of working and studying?

Normally, people think of sleeping and, in the warm Rio de Janeiro, we think of doing that in an air-conditioned room. However, in this green place, the trees create an awesome atmosphere of fresh air and cool shades to survive the carioca sun.

The only problem I have seen in this place was: the food is pretty expensive, so I recommend you to take your own food to that place. A Pic nic can be a good idea.
