    We booked here based on what we had read, reviews and wanting to experience a favela. It was certainly an experience, for a few reasons we wouldn't return. People were friendly but walking about we did at times feel uncomfortable, as if we were intruding....More

    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.
