'If that street were mine . ..'
Maybe we would not change a thing. The ‘Rua das Pedras’ is where the night begins and often ends. It’s not only made of stones, but also made of joy, rhythm, color, craft, celebration and music. It’s about 600 meters long and it’s where you’ll find the best of many worlds for a fantastic end of the day. Along the sidewalk there is art, fashion, cuisine from different places, crafts, bars, shops of any kind and cross talks in other languages.
Do you feel like going to the movies ?
Then you are in the right place. In Buzios, the movie theatre is called Gran Cine Bardot – it has the capacity to have more than 100 spectators and it’s where the renowned Buzios Film Festival takes place. It’s called Bardot as a tribute to Brigitte, the diva of cinema – during the 60’s, Buzios was chosen by the actress as her secret refuge. Actually, that trend still remains and Buzios is still a ‘shelter’ for those who want to rest from the day-to-day rush. A quiet and perfect place that to live in.
