Botanical Garden

Guided tour in Rio de Janeiro

Comfort and leisure for all ages

A true ecological sanctuary. This would be a fair definition of the Rio de Janeiro Botanical Gardens, one of the ten most important in the world.

Besides housing the rarest species of plants from the flora of Brazil and other countries, it is also an excellent leisure option and a delight for those who wish to contemplate nature.

Among the approximately 8200 specimens of the gardens' live collection, the highlights are the imperial palm trees and threatened species such as "pau-brasil", "acará amarelo" and "pau mulato", the medicinal plots and the Japanese gardens.

The orchid house is a spectacle by itself. The three thousand specimens of 600 different species are moving for their rare beauty.
