Santa Teresa Attractions in Rio de Janeiro

Take time out from your sunbathing schedule to visit this leafy hillside neighborhood, which feels a world removed from the tourist crush of Copacabana and the sticky streets of Centro.

Ride the antique bonde (tram) over the Arcos da Lapa and up the winding cobbled streets, where you'll pass glorious colonial mansions in various states of repair and desrepair. Jump off at Largo do Guimaraes, close to a cluster of restaurants, art stores and vintage clothes shops, before drinking at legendary loal watering hole Bar do Mineriro.
