    Quinta da Boa Vista

    by Willettsworld Written Oct 2, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The huge area of Quinta da Boa Vista measures some 150,000 square metres and was the residence of the imperial royal family from 1809 to 1889 when the Republic was proclaimed. The romantic gardens were designed in 1869 by French landscape designer Auguste Francois Marie Glaziou. Today it's a large and busy park with gardens and lakes. The former imperial mansion now houses the National Museum and there is also a zoo which is worth a visit.

    Directions: Near Maracana football stadium. Take the metro to Sao Cristovao and cross the rail lines via the bridge. The entrance to the park is right in front of you.

    Rio's largest historic park offers lush gardens and lawns, bicycles lanes, lakes, caves and islands. The park was created in 1600's and given as a gift to the Portuguese royal family. Quinta da Boa Vista was their official residence until the Republic was proclaimed. Now you will find a zoo and the National Museum. A wonderful location for history lovers.
