Rio de Janeiro: Through the doors of Parque Lage

#Sun, #samba, the famous #Sugar Loaf… all of these things come to mind when thinking of #Rio de Janeiro. But how about Rio’s secret #Parque Lage, a hidden gem at the foot of #São Corcovado, the mountain where stands the #iconic #Christ? Surrounded by thick forest and a #jungle vibe, Parque Lage is a reformed mansion that nowadays hosts an #art school and a #café open to the public.

Parque Lage roused #touristic curiosity after featuring at the end of #Snoop Dog’s ‘Beautiful’ video that was shot in Rio de Janeiro. The backdrop of São Corcovado with the ever-watching Christ, and the focal green pool in the centre of the building proved the perfect setting for the #music video whose name appropriately captures the essence of the place.

Being an art school, it has sporadic open #exhibitions of recently #painted #work influenced by various sources, yet #Brazilian #culture comes through many of the pieces. The mansion is open to the public for free and it invites guests to look at the art or enjoy the café with its assortment of #coffees, #wines, #beers and #food. Take a stroll around the surrounding #park and find yourself accompanied by various #species of #monkeys and exotic #butterflies.
