HistoryEdit

The railway station Honório Gurgel was inaugurated in 1905 with the name of Munguengue. It took its current name, which has existed since the 1920s, on honour of a former mayor of the municipality of Rio de Janeiro.

Honório Gurgel is part of the XV Administrative Region (Madureira) of the city of Rio de Janeiro.

Brazilian singers Anitta and Gabriel Diks were raised in the neighborhood.
