“It was that common feeling: I wanna buy Rio City.”
Reviewed 17 August 2012

The luxury house fights to keep yourself standing in the overwhelming tropical heat, not to mention that also holds the low cost of small budget left by the government and the symbolic entrance.

Amazing character was Rui Barbosa, more impressive than I imagined. Lots of good furtineture for that period.
A small shop mainly for good readers, the coffee shop was just ok. But I did hate the 70´s building which grow up around the garden.

The nice thing is the location in Botafogo, it is on everybody path. If you miss an apointment, it seems a good scape, spend a time in the Rui Barbosa's garden. You might see about a little from other side of Carioca´s sociaty in Belle Epoque (1870-1914), the promissing side.

“A must for those interested in Brazilian history!”
Reviewed 26 July 2012

A wonderful home that fully reflects the complex man who had such an immense impact on the Republic. The pleasant garden and grounds offer a welcome respite from the noise and bustle of Botafogo.
If you visit, you MUST go to the Museu do Indio a few blocks away.

“I think he's rich!”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

My 7 year old went on a field trip and really enjoyed it. Among other things she said the owner was a short man who likes to write. Also "I think he's rich!". Plus, she saw the bed he died in! A fun way to end an educational field trip!!
