Things to do in Urca, Rio de Janeiro, are not confined to the cable car ride up to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain.
An attractive, laid-back neighborhood, Urca is packed with gorgeous examples of colonial architecture, and is one of the best places in the city for nature-spotting.
Urca is within a few minutes' walk of Rio Sul shopping, just a few minutes' bus ride from the Leme end of Copacabana beach, and close to the attractions of Flamengo, such as the neighborhood's vast landscaped park and a museum dedicated to the memory of Carmen Miranda.
