3.2/5 based on 80+ 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.

  • Despite being careless worth visiting! It's a trip back in time! And unlike some comments is not the first Apothecary shop (cosmetics).

  • Place that impresses with journey over time it provides. However, I feel sorry for the pitiful state in which you find yourself.

  • Largo do Boticário is a historical heritage of the city that currently is degraded, without the slightest maintenance. A pity that the memory of the river is being abandoned. The facades of the houses are very deteriorated by the time, though the place is still inhabited.

  • Um lugar onde parece que o Rio de Janeiro parou no tempo, seu casario com fachadas antigas junto com a atmosfera calma lembra uma imagem do Rio antigo, a tranquilidade do lugar é um oásis em meio a correria diária e o fluxo diário de veículos que cortam a Rua Cosme Velho para acessar o Túnel Rebouças. Pesa contra o espaço a conservação dos imóveis que estão muito deteriorados e precisam de reparos urgentes.
