The beauty of Brigitte Bardot

In the 60s Brigitte spent sometime in Búzios and because that, the place apperas in international magazines. They thank her putting a statue there. Nice idea.

But interesting story behind it. If you're in the area, it is worth seeing, but I wouldn't do the trip just for this statue ;)

As I am French, it was quite funny and surprising to find the statue of Brigitte Bardot in Buzios. She made the world know and discover Buzios like she did in Saint Tropez. Buzios is the Brazilian Saint Tropez.

Smart, marketing and promotion. Smart tourism. Brigette visits for one month and they build a statue. Smart

We were looking for a much bigger statue and were disappointed with the small size of the statue. But since is a must see it, we saw it.

Part of the obligatory pre-dinner evening stroll, once you've done Rua das Pedras (in the first direction) and the pier. But you'll not be the only one with that idea... It's nice... Whatever... Why are we doing this again? Ah yeah... Part of the obligatory pre-dinner...

I guess if you're in Buzios you shouldn't really pass on the opportunity to get a photo sitting on Brigitte Bardot's lap!! Sadly only a statue but we can all dream!!

Without knowing who the lady is you would name the statue: the traveler. It's a actually Brigitte Bardot, the French actress who by visiting Buzios made it famous. She's staring at the horizon sitting on her luggage, calm and silent.

What boy in the 1960's did not have a crush on Ms Bardot? You can see where the paint is worn off in areas where fans and perverts grope her. I enjoyed seeing the statue and thinking about a slower and kinder time and place.

It's only one more statue; however, it's really important for what Buzios is today. The city is kinda of famous because of B.B.. I suggest to walk by the sidewalk and stop by the statue only to register.
