Beautiful, serene and peaceful, this botanical garden seems a bit derelict. I believe it is only an impression, created by the various winding paths paved in stone instead of asphalt, and the humidity which lends a green patina even to newer stonework. Overall, it is a great space, with beautiful local and foreign exhibits. The vistas keep changing and as you stroll through the garden you have opportunities to take the main road or less beaten paths, bringing you close to the beautiful trees and plants. A restful experience even if you walk for miles. Highly recommended.
Well worth the entrance fee! A huge botanical garden which is set in a lovely neighbourhood of Rio offering welcome respite to the hustle and bustle of the city. A wide range of plants and birds can be seen and you can easily spend 3 or 4 hours here. We didn’t have time to try out the coffee shop and restaurant but they looked more than decent.
