Bairro Peixoto information
A world away from the bustle of Copacabana's busy avenues, the Bairro Peixoto is a peaceful enclave centered on the leafy Praça Edmundo Bittencourt. There you'll find a playground, park benches and tables where folks play dominoes and read the paper, all of which seem to lend the setting more of a village-like air than that of a big-city neighborhood. You might even see a few marmosets up in the trees.
Wednesday's a good day to visit, when the weekly fruit market takes place.
