Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas

In 1702, the young Portuguese cavalry officer, Rodrigo de Freitas de Carvalho, only 18 years old, gave his name to the lagoon. Widowed, Rodrigo de Freitas returned to Portugal in 1717, where he died in 1748.

The lagoon has 2.4 million square meters, where you can practice water sports such as rowing or a nice ride on a pedal boat.
