The basics

Along with Christ the Redeemer, Tijuca Rainforest, Santa Teresa, and Sugarloaf Mountain, Parque Lage is counted among Rio’s Big Five attractions. That said, the park is featured on many city tours and is often paired with Rio de Janeiro Botanical Gardens on tours that focus on the city’s green spaces. Instagrammers and social media fans can book a photo shoot at Parque Lage, which typically includes a digital photo album with images from a professional photographer.

Parque Lage Mansion

Among the most impressive features of Parque Lage is its colonial-style mansion, which was later remodeled by Italian architect Mario Vodrelan. The building now houses a school of visual arts, which often hosts exhibitions of student artwork in its gallery space; check the Parque Lage website for details of upcoming exhibitions.
