Pedra Bonita is part of the Tijuca massif and has a maximum altitude of 696 meters, covered in some parts by the Atlantic Forest. At the beginning of the journey to Pedra Bonita, you can still see the "Chikki" pavement dating from the 18th or 19th century.
In addition, the summit of Pedra Bonita is right in front of the famous face of Pedra da Gávea, which appears to be carved in the rock, known as the Emperor's head.
The paving was done by slaves, probably still at the time of the Empire. In the place there were some farms, where in the late 19th century flowers and other plantations were cultivated. The way up and down the goods was done by mule.
