Boticario Square, Rio de Janeiro
(3.1/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
Boticario Square is a historical location that provides an educational glimpse of how Rio was during the colonial times: a small city square and large fairly well preserved houses surrounded by lush vegetation, with a river running on the edge of the square. This tranquil square is close to Christ the Redeemer entrances and the Corcovado railway station. You can take a brief walk through it while you are waiting for a train departure.

  • There is a charge for improper parking in place. Run and do not put your car there. I can't tell if they have permission to make such charges. We paid 50 reais to leave your car on the street to take the train to the corcovado.

  • The small Largo do Boticário and an oasis of tranquility close to crowded neighbourhoods of Rio de Janeiro. Its beautiful houses make us travel back in time and learn a little of the old Rio.

  • The beauty of the old houses and the Green circulating the area create a special atmosphere. Largo transports us to the works of Machado.

  • Local ótimo para fotos hipster pro insta
  • Um lindo lugar escondido no Cosme Velho, onde você atravessa uma pequena ponte sob o Rio Carioca e se depara com várias casas no estilo Neoclássico , infelizmente abandonadas. O Lugar recebe esse nome devido a um antigo morador, o Sargento-Mor Joaquim José da Silva Souto, conhecido como Boticário por ser proprietário de uma Botica, antiga Farmácia na antiga Rua Direita, que hoje é a Rua Primeiro de Março. Também já viveu por lá a família Bittencourt, donos do "Jornal Correio da Manhã", artistas como Augusto Rodrigues, fundador da Escolinha de Arte do Brasil entre outros.
  • Gostei demais
