CURIOSITIES:

Botanical Garden – The Botanical Garden shows the diversity of Brazilian and foreign flora. There are around 6,500 species (some endangered) distributed throughout an area of 54 hectares, and there are numerous greenhouses. The garden also houses monuments of historical, artistic and archaeological significance. There is an important research center, which includes the most complete library in the country specializing in botany with over 32,000 volumes.

Sugarloaf Mountain – Is a peak situated in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, at the mouth of Guanabara Bayon a peninsula that sticks out into the Atlantic Ocean. Rising 396 meters (1,299 ft) above the harbor, its name is said to refer to its resemblance to the traditional shape of concentrated refined loaf sugar. It is known worldwide for its cableway and panoramic views of the city.
To reach the summit, passengers take two cable cars. The first ascends to the shorter Morro da Urca, 220 meters (722 ft) high. The second car ascends to Pão de Açúcar. The Swiss-made bubble-shaped cars offer passengers 360-degree views of the surrounding city. The climb takes three minutes from start to finish.

Christ Redeemer – Is an Art Deco statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, created by French sculptor Paul Landowski and built by the Brazilian engineer Heitor da Silva Costa, in collaboration with the French engineer Albert Caquot.
The statue weighs 635 metric tons (625 long, 700 short tons), and is located at the peak of the 700-metre (2,300 ft) Corcovado mountain in the Tijuca Forest National Park overlooking the city of Rio. A symbol of Christianity across the world, the statue has also become a cultural icon of both Rio de Janeiro and Brazil, and is listed as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

Confeitaria Colombo – Opened in 1894, Confeitaria Colombo tells of the elegance of Rio de Janeiro's downtown at the turn of the 20th century.
Inspired in the grand tearooms of Europe, Colombo was founded at first as a pastry shop by Portuguese immigrants Joaquim Borges de Meireles and Manuel José Lebrão. It has preserved the quality of its pastries and the sumptuous Art Nouveau architecture and design elements which brought a new edge of luxury to the elegant central area of Rio de Janeiro, then the capital of Brazil's young Republic. Details such as the ceiling dome in stained glass, the jacaranda furniture and the Belgian mirrors are all original. In 1983, Colombo was listed as Historic and Artistic Heritage.

Colombo has a restaurant - Cristóvão, on the second floor. Chef Renato Freire, who heads the three kitchens at Colombo, taps into Portuguese and Spanish culinary for the Cristóvão menu where you has a buffet with salads, dishes and desserts.
Also on the second floor is Espaço Memória, the shop's museum. Old menus, photos, tea services, containers of Colombo products, Portuguese sterling silver services and other items are on display in this elegant room
