Beautiful Botanical Garden
In the afternoon Pablo took us to the Botanical Garden, a peaceful oasis in the middle of the city. We had a great time exploring the gardens, which are full of interesting plants from around the world, and keeping an eye out for the small monkeys which call this beautiful place home!
In one more beautiful and sunny afternoon in Rio de Janeiro, our Portuguese students from Rio & Learn visited one of the ‘greenest’ parts of the city, Jardim Botânico (Botanic Garden). A huge and beautiful place, with 54 hectares, the garden shelters more than 6500 species of plants from all over the world. In addition to that, it is also a place that Rio’s history is present.
Everything started with the Portuguese Royal Family’s arrival in 1808 and up today you can see some features of Brazil as a colony. This place is so beautiful and popular that many people go there to take pictures for weddings and special birthday parties. Our students from Germany, Spain, Colombia, England and Ecuador also enjoyed this place taking some pictures and getting to know each other better.
In the end, we finished our RioLIVE! amazed with the beauty of the place. Do you want to learn Portuguese in a fun way, meet new people and visit the best places in Rio de Janeiro? Come to Rio & Learn and take part in our RioLIVE! Activities.
