Parque Lage is so ridiculously beautiful in person, and it is perhaps one of my favorite stops on my trip to Brazil so far! The area offers as much as you want from it...a beautiful building you're welcome to hang out in/around, a cafe/restaurant, forest area to explore, and even a hiking path up to Cristo Redentor. Admission is free... More

There is sort of a university cafe here and breakfast is to die for! Apparently there is a way to get to the Christ from the back of this restaurant but I'm not too sure

Well manicured gardens..., water fountains.., water falls.., hiking.., a historic swimming pool..., an ok restaurant..., vegetation galore..., from there the Cristo Redentor can be reached. A must see while in Rio.

Because of its proximity to the Botanical Garden, I guess this Park is often skipped by tourists. It is a pity as it is indeed a great place to relax, walk in the nature and enjoy a coffee at the cool Cafe inside the beautiful building. Also, Free entrance. If you like graffiti, when leaving the park walk down Av.Jardim... More

Very easy to get to with a beautiful mansion with small art exhibit inside. The cafe is wonderful with great food, coffee, and service. Surrounding the mansion is a wonderful area to explore feeling like you are in the jungle. Also, very easy to get to by taxi and free.

I first saw Parque Lage from the music video "Beautiful" from Snoop Dogg and Pharrell and I always wanted to visit this place ever since. The place is in the Botanical Garden area. The mansion is absolutely beautiful with a pool in front. You can grab lunch at this mansion and it's totally a must-do here to have food and... More

I did it before visiting Cristo because I should wait for train to visit Cristo for 3 hours. So I went this park with bus from Cristo. I has an amazing view and old building which I liked.
