    The late Chilean artist Jorge Selarón spent the last 23 years of his life working on this mesmerizing installation — a vibrant mosaic-covered stairway that connects Lapa with the hilltop neighborhood of Santa Teresa. Using tiles from all over the world, Selaron created a ceramic tapestry in bold colors that celebrates his adopted homeland and the bohemian spirit of his artistry. You'll see lots of greens, yellows and blues (the color of the Brazilian flag) on the steps, as well as shimmering red tiles that frame the stairway, and lots of eye-catching works (street characters, landscapes) by the artist.

    This brightly colored staircase connects Lapa to St. Teresa. It is the handiwork of a Chilean genius by the name of Jorge Selaron. The 215 steps are covered by yellow, green, and blue tiles which are the colors of the Brazilan flag.

    Very colorful, artistic steps running from Rua Joaquim Silva and Rua Pinto Martins designed by artist Jorge Selaron. There are 250 steps measuring 125 metres long, which are covered in over 2000 tiles collected from over 60 countries around the world. This is a constant work in progress, and makes a great photo op location.
