I really wanted to visit Largo do Boticario very much before even travelling to Rio. When I found out that it was featured in the "Mooraker" James Bond 007 movie I checked the movie again and I was like: woooooooooooow And I must say that...More

A very small spot. But, through this small square surrounded by old houses, one can figure out how nice Rio was a century ago. Worth the detour!

It is a smal square , fairly well preserved with houses from the 19th century. It is worth a stop on the way to Dona Marta and the Corcovado.
