  • Can be seen from the top of Corcovado Mountain but doesn't disappoint if you go through it and get in as it is a very old and well preserved architecture and worth knowing.

  • For those who likes to bet on horses racing it's great but if you don't you can just admire the beautiful place. In addition to betting area, inside the Jockey you can also find bars, restaurants, club, gym, yoga school, theatre, bank branch, temporary exposition and fairs salon, and parking.
