D.João IV, bound for the culture of exotic plants brought form allover the
world, is a unique park due its the variety of species. Among them, we can find the Imperial Palm

Brasil) almost extinguished in the Atlantic Forest. Also, in its famous
greenhouse, there are more than 500 kinds of orchids.
Next, we visit the Tijuca Atlantic Forest, the largest
urban forest in the world stopping at the Chinese View belvedere with a
