Buzios was 'discovered' after Brigitte Bardot vacationed here. now most tourists walk along the water and pose next to a bronze statue. Nice keepsake.

There is not much to see here except for the natural beauty of the island. The legend says that Brigitte Bardot hid out here for a month or so back in the 60s. So, they erected this statue of her. I didn't find it particularly...More

It is a nice art thing. Not sure about the relation to Buzios. There are lots of other street arts items you can find there...

But interesting story behind it. If you're in the area, it is worth seeing, but I wouldn't do the trip just for this statue ;)

As I am French, it was quite funny and surprising to find the statue of Brigitte Bardot in Buzios. She made the world know and discover Buzios like she did in Saint Tropez. Buzios is the Brazilian Saint Tropez.
