Largo do Boticário

Largo do Boticário is located on the edge of the Corcovado Mountain, close to Christ the Redeemer station and surrounded by the Atlantic Forest. It stays in Cosme Velho Quarter, the traditional address of artists and intellectuals, where centenary buildings remind us of its aristocratic past. It is a unique place to visit in Rio as it has been recently restored, offering a cozy and comfortable boutique hotel (see the post below), full of green where colonial buildings are mixed with antiques and 21st century’s technologies. A perfect place to go before or after visiting Christ the Redeemer!

O Largo do Boticário está localizado aos pés do Morro do Corcovado, pertinho da estação para o Cristo Redentor, cercado pela Floresta Atlântica. O Largo fica no Cosme Velho, endereço tradicional de artistas e intelectuais, onde construções centenárias nos lembram do seu aristocrático passado. É um lugar único para ser visitado, pois foi recentemente restaurado e agora oferece um charmoso hotel boutique (veja o post abaixo), cercado de verde, onde prédios coloniais estão misturados à antiguidades e tecnologias do século 21. O lugar perfeito para se conhecer depois de visitar o Cristo Redentor!

Hi Susannah! Thanks for your visit and nice comment!

Yes, Largo do Boticário is really full of colors, green and joy, as all your 6 (!!!) blogs!

By the way, I loved the quote on your "Joy Frequencies" blog: If you cannot find happiness along the road, You will not find it at the end of the road. - Author Unknown.

So, let's have joy on our walk through life!
