  • Walking through this neighborhood is like a trip to the past. Old and beautiful mansions, aged with elegance, surrounded by lush gardens are the sophistication with which at the beginning of the 20TH century, they lived in that area. It is worth moving into the streets of the neighborhood to admire the facades and gardens with elegant statues.

  • Here at Cosme Velho, the old historic buildings and modernity coexist very well. Illustrious residents of the neighborhood, including Machado de Assis, were in the pages of history. The train station of Corcovado is also in the neighborhood, which attracts many tourists to the site.
