Rio de Janeiro: Explore Rio de Janeiro's Botanical Gardens

Explore Rio de Janeiro's Botanical Gardens
Bringing together plant species from across Brazil’s diverse territory, the Botanical Gardens in Rio make an enchanting escape from the city. Immense imperial palms soar on either side of wide boulevards beside ponds of giant Amazonian water lilies, while vine-covered pavilions and colonial-era fountains perfectly complement the irrepressible greenery. There is also plenty of fauna to spot among the flora – marmosets are numerous and there is a huge variety of bird life.
