The landscaper Burle Marx and its site - cultural heritage

Burle Marx, the multiple artist, was a collector of plants and objects of art and design, among which Brazilian folk art stands out, displayed on the site where one can visit the seventeenth-century church restored by him. The visit to the Burle Marx Site is a highly inspiring and rare opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of nature preservation as we observe one of the most important collections of tropical plants in the world. After the visit to the site, we will continue to Pedra de Guaratiba and its lush beaches. In an attempt to dominate Rio de Janeiro in the XVI century, the French chose this place to setlle down and follow by land towards the shores of Guanabara Bay. Pedra de Guaratiba keeps many stories to tell its visitors. Following the beaches of Grumari, Prainha, Macumba, Recreio, Barra da Tijuca, São Conrado, Leblon and Ipanema.
