Boticario Square, Rio de Janeiro

(2/5 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.

  • Wedged in the Cosme Velho neighborhood, near the Church of St. Jude, the Largo do Boticário is a relic lost in the city. Old and beautiful buildings but could be in a better state of preservation. is the old River in the 21st century.

  • The images that had seen before travel I had excited much, despite some comments negative of other travelers. After having gone, I am sorry to agree with them. This shady and maintenance-free place is absolutely wasted. Believe that the presence of restaurants, bars or shops would help to give you the life that you lack to those elderly homes colorful immersed in a vegetation lush. Precisely because of the private nature of this place I had the feeling of being the intruder. It is a pity that there is nothing that invite to stay unemployed for more than a few minutes observing constructions. If you goes to the Corcovado and you are interested in it architecture, not costs nothing pass by there because is to some 300 or 400 meters of the station. Remove is the taste of have gone, of that mode will have an opinion personal based on his own experience. If to you not you are interested in the architecture, not waste your time going there.

  • Interesting area in terms of poznovanija. Vintage House, colonial style. But the place is not very pleasant and attractive. I even do not know whether or not to recommend to visit. If you'll only pass by.
