Art in Búzios
Búzios has several galleries with local artists and foreign artists. The foreign are in larger number, because they love the city's environment, and end up moving in. At Rua das Pedras, there is a small gallery called Galeria das Artes (Arts Gallery), which unites several artists and permanent displays. Oil paintings, bronze sculptures and several types of art can be appreciated and bought.
