Have you ever dreamed of visiting a Tropical Forest?

If your romantic soul felt the urge to do that you have to visit the well-known botanical garden "Sitio Roberto Burle Marx". In the 100 acres territory more than 3.500 various kinds of exotic plants brought from countries with a damp climate grow and flourish.

A fragrance of indescribable beauty of colors and flitting butterflies create an atmosphere of a fairy tale. The founder of this paradise Roberto Burle Marx during more than 40 years of traveling to the countries of Africa, India, and Indonesia has collected a splendid collection of pictures and works of art.

In a museum for visitors, you can see " objects of poetic emotions " incarnate in ceramics, clay, decorative glass, and bronze. In a small chapel devoted to Saint Anthony, you will feel as if you were in the 17 century.

For groups, the friendly guide will add to your knowledge of local flora.

Bring your camera. Save your impressions with a background of wonderful landscapes and fantastic trees.

Situated in the western region of Rio de Janeiro, the property embodies a successful project developed over more than 40 years by landscape architect and artist Roberto Burle Marx (1909-1994), a “landscape laboratory” to create “living works of art” using native plants and drawing on Modernist ideas. Began in 1949, the property encompasses extensive landscapes, gardens, buildings, and collections, which feature the key characteristics that came to define Burle Marx’s landscape gardens and influenced the development of modern gardens internationally.

By the end of the 1960s, the site housed the most representative collection of Brazilian plants, alongside other rare tropical species. In the site, 3,500 cultivated species of tropical and subtropical flora grow in harmony with the native vegetation of the region, notably the Atlantic Forest biome and associated ecosystems, mangrove swamp and restinga (coastal tropical sandy plain).

Sítio Roberto Burle Marx exhibits an ecological conception of form as a process, including social collaboration which is the basis for environmental and cultural preservation. It comprises the first modern tropical garden to be inscribed on the World Heritage List.
