  • Out of that hubbub of the boroughs on the edge and worth known walking. Very good.

  • In the Cosme Velho is a very interesting mix between the new and the old. Many old buildings remaining to this day mingle with modernity. The nature of this neighborhood tbm should be highlighted.

  • 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.
