Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors can now stroll through this area to view magnificent mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.

Hey Marcelo, I'm afraid I only speak English. We didn't park in afraid and I didn't see a car park so perhaps it better to ask the hotel directly. Thanks, Kershia
