Sitio Roberto Burle Marx, Rio de Janeiro
(4.6/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
These verdant green gardens are Roberto Burle Marx’s personal legacy to the city he so lovingly “painted” with plants. As you explore the 404,686 sq m (100 acres) estate, you will see more than 3,500 species, including some discovered by Marx himself, arranged with his legendary whimsical touch. You will also see the ultramodern studio where he painted, and a small restored colonial chapel dedicated to St. Anthony. Inside the perfectly preserved house, you can find his extraordinary collection of religious images and pottery from the valley of Rio Jequitinhonha, and, of course, some of his own paintings and sculptures. Despite his death in 1994, Marx’s creative force lives on and you will certainly notice this when you visit Sitio Roberto Burle Marx.

  • The ride was very nice, although we do not have scheduled the visit as the ride was leaving the Concierge was very helpful and encachou. The gardens are beautiful, the workshop and the residencia as well. The only drawback is that it's very hectic and we ran out of view. Also botanical information are missing. The security that follows us all the time is very nice, but it's an unpleasant situation.

  • The country home of Roberto Burle Marx with its over 4000 species of plants is a feast for the eyes. The buildings and the gardens are in very good condition and are very professionally maintained. What this man has created in his short lifetime, is a masterpiece. Burle Marx is not only landscape architect but also as an Aesthete. Be miracle value!

  • We went last week with my wife. You have to book by phone in advance. The visit is. One comes out tomorrow and the other after noon. It is really very interesting. 40 hectares of Park very well maintained. It is also the residence of Burle Marx to visit. To go should take metro or subway to Barra da Tijuca, then bus at the bus station opposite to Shopping Recreio and from there an Uber or Taxi. Highly recommended!
