Parque Lage information
This beautiful park, at the base of Floresta da Tijuca, is about 1km from Jardim Botânico. It has English-style gardens, little lakes and a mansion that houses the Escola de Artes Visuais (School of Visual Arts), which hosts free art exhibitions and occasional performances. The park is a tranquil place and the cafe here is a fine setting for coffee or a meal. Native Atlantic rainforest surrounds Parque Lage, and you can sometimes see monkeys and toucans among the foliage. This is the starting point for challenging hikes up Corcovado.
