Sitio Roberto Burle Marx

Highly recommended
The achievements of the great landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx include the Parque do Flamengo, the grounds of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Brasília, and the famous pavement designs in Copacabana. His property comprises his house, an immense 365km2 garden (with thousands of plant species), a 17C Benedictine chapel (which is used for weddings) and a studio where his work is on display. Not to be missed!
