Those who pass through Rua Cosme Velho hardly notice a small alley (Beco do Boticário) that gives entrance to the charming Largo do Boticário. There are only 8 houses in neocolonial style, surrounded by the Atlantic forest and where you can still hear the Carioca River running in the open air. The Largo came into existence in 1879 and its houses have undergone many renovations and continue to need care, but still the place continues to attract tourists and take the visitor to a quiet and bucolic time travel. The name Boticário was given because there lived Sergeant Joaquim da Silva Souto, retired military man known for the preparation of ointments and syrups, an apothecary.

In the top of the mountain is installed Christ the redeemer, one of the most wanted touristic sides of Rio de Janeiro. Biggest and most famous scripture Art Déco of the world. It’s located at Parque Nacional da Tijuca, 710 meter above the sea level, where anybody can appreciate one of the most beautiful views of the city. The monument is accessible by train, van or car. To get into the monument, there’s a nice ride by train that, during 20 minutes, it crosses Mata Atlântica until Corcovado’s top.
