"Botafogo" Botafogo Tip by Andreas_Fran

Botafogo, Rio de Janeiro: 9 reviews and 11 photos


A traditional neighborhood located between the historical Flamengo-Downtown strip and the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema. Years ago, many mansions were built in the area and most have been turned over to private clinics or schools. In addition to a colorful nightlife, this is the center of cultural activities such as museums and theatres. Great shopping at one of Rio's shopping malls, RioSul plus numerous outlets and discount stores.
