A tropical lagoon located in the centre of Rio, Lagoa´s 8 km circumference offers one of the world´s most spectacular spots for running, cycling or simply relaxing. With Christ the Redeemer keeping an eye on things from his perch on Corcovado and the Dois Irmãos mountains rising in the near distance, residents of Lagoa watch rowers traverse the lagoon from the comfort of their picture windows and balconies high above the sparkling water below. Spacious apartments with grand entrances and attentive doormen make Lagoa one of the most privileged places to call home in Rio.
