  • Even a little bit abandoned, walk through the Valley of the river's first public park in the colonial period. Cited by many writers. It's a historic ride, bucolic and peaceful. All French style architected by Mestre Valentim. Look at the beautiful gate. There are police at the entrance of the Park, which brings a certain security to the site. Is very near Cinelândia subway.

  • Train of world first, all very organized and with air conditioning. Before you have to buy a card in own network then download and so take a next train. Going to the Santos Dumont Airport. Remind you to enter the train validates your card. There is still an employee to find out all the passengers.

  • Place of rest cited in the novels of Machado de Assis, has centuries-old trees and some peace in the midst of the big city. Today, there was need for gates, closing the night on Monday and remain closed.
