“A very traditional bar. Beer comes in large bottles to be shared using the small 'copos americanos' glasses, brazilian way”
“A small round square facing a church, quite pictoresque. Friday and Saturday nights can get quite crowded. On Tuesday morning there is a market selling fruits, vegetables, etc.”
“Santa Marta slum. One of the first slums to be pacified in Rio. Home to the recordings of Michael Jackson's "They don't care about us" music video. Difficult to get by, make sure to hire a local to guide you (many kids informaly offer this service)”
“One of Santa Teresa neighborhood's most iconic hangouts. With black and white photos on the walls, rows of spirits lined up behind the counter and shared table - the venue effortlessly makes you feel at home. It is the best place to have the traditional feijoada for lunch!”
“One of Rio's best loved attractions in Lapa neighborhood, the steps leading up from Rua Joaquim Silva became a work of art when Chilean-born artist Jorge Selarón decided to cover the steps with colorful mosaics. A dedication to the Brazilian people, the 215 steps are a vivid riot of color. ”
