Properties in Botafogo Rio de JaneiroThe beachfront Botafogo, (a prime area) a middle- to upper-class borough, abounds with colonial mansions along cobblestone streets. Distinctly more traditional than neighbouring Ipanema and Copacabana, it is a relatively obscure retreat with cosy caf├ęs, bookshops, art-film theatres and museums. The Museu do Indio features indigenous Brazilian art and handicrafts, while Villa-Lobos Museum is a tribute to Brazilian Academy of Music founder and composer Heirto Villa-Lobos.
