The French star came here in the 60s, and Rio's beautiful people soon followed. Fifty years on, it is still Brazil's coolest resort. As far as thank-you gifts go, this is a good one. The Brazilian seaside resort of Búzios honoured its favourite holiday-maker with...More

I had heard about this statue before arriving and was excited to see it. But I gotta say it, it is very unflattering (sorry to the sculptor) with her hand oddly placed and legs spread. So, it was a bit of a disappointment for me,...More

Buzios was 'discovered' after Brigitte Bardot vacationed here. now most tourists walk along the water and pose next to a bronze statue. Nice keepsake.

We, of the 50's and 60's all know of Brigitte. She is just as cute as a statue. Not a lot to do here but a pleasant place to visit. Can see why the locals visit.
