Parque Enrique Lage is a public park in the city of Rio de Janeiro, located in the Jardim Botânico neighborhood at the foot of the Corcovado, on top of which Christ the Redeemer is located.
The land was formerly the residence of industrialist Henrique Lage and his wife, singer Gabriella Besanzoni. During the 1920s Lage had the mansion remodeled by Italian architect Mario Vodret, with interior paintings by Salvador Payols Sabaté.

It's a free public access park with a big villa in it that houses a way to popular restaurant. The park as such is not exactly full of of flowers, but full of lush tropical greens of the kind we Northerners do not get to see - and there are a few old human constructed gems plus an aquarium with rare / endangered fish (or so they said) on display. In all a nice spot to spend half a day or the entire day (you can bring your own picnic in certain areas) if you get bored of the beaches.

There are many things you need to know before your vacation to Rio. If you really wanna have peace go to Parque Lage and have a cup of coffee with the view of Christian the Redeemer. You can access to park with bus and subway. If you want to hike to hill also, entrance to hiking path is here. You need to register yourself in the guard house. Inside of this building, professional camera is not allowed. You can only use your smart phone for photography

Parque laje is wonderful and its free. This beautiful space offers a stunning view of corcovado montain as it stants at the base of it, a beautiful structure that now holds a arts school and free gallery, expo, and a beautiful garden.

Beautiful house and environment. Used to be the home of a famous opera singer who married a wealthy man.

Looks bigger on the picture. Can be better if they clean the place up a bit.

My favorite spot in Rio! The park is big and full of hidden places! So amazing very beautiful and a bit scary sometimes. Underground caves, loads of little spots around and amazingly beautiful main building with a view on Crist of course. Love it! + There is no entrance fee

Undoubtedly one of the most photographed locations in Rio and despite it being busy, we didn’t find it overwhelming whilst lining up to get the best snap. The park surrounding the main building is gorgeous and includes a hike up the mountain or even a mini aquarium on grounds. Catching an uber was easy enough to and fro the park

A beautiful Villa inside a park, with great photo opportunities. Free entree. Don't miss the small aquarium hidden in the park, looks like a cave.

It is a very peaceful place where nature makes you forget that you are actually in the city. Great breakfast restaurant, great for a Sunday start.
