Quinta da Boa Vista, Rio de Janeiro

(4.1/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Quinta da Boa Vista was once the garden refuge to the emperors of the Brazil in the 19th century. Prior to the royals, the land belonged to a Jesuit farmer who took great pride in its views and lush vegetation. However, upon arrival of the Prince Regent John the VI, the farmer made a gift of his land to the new ruler. The property became a favorite spot for the prince. He made the farm his main residence due to its seclusion and beauty. You will still find the rich greenery lovingly cultivated by a Jesuit farmer and graciously gifted to a prince. 

As the city grew, the swampland surrounding the Quinta da Boa Vista and the palace was filled in to give access to the city. The palace located on the grounds in now the home of the National Museum, where you will find a collection of artwork and artifacts from all over Brazil.

  • You can take a walk in the Park, visit the Museum, kayaking, pedalo or just have a picnic in a lawn. A great place to sit under a tree, enjoying the scenery in contact with nature. Next to the train and metro and with extensive parking options, it's a great ride!! The kids love it!
