Opened in 1999, the Botafogo Praia Shopping mall is located in a choice spot in the city’s South Zone and offers one of the most beautiful views in the region: from one side one can see the Christ The Reedeemer statue, from the other, one can see the Botafogo harbor and the Sugarloaf mountain, one of Rio de Janeiro’s best known postcard views.
The mall offers eight floors with 170 shops catering to different needs for the whole family. There’s a six-theater movieplex – one of which is outfitted for 3D shows – and a wide variety of dining options, from fast food stalls to more refined establishments.
The building’s design favor natural light and takes advantage of the surrounding scenery. Dozens of tourists visit the top floor to have their picture taken with the Sugarloaf behind them. And foreign visitors feel welcome, as this is where the Rio Convention & Visitors Bureau is located.
