    Five minutes walk from the flat and you are in the Sambodrome, the Samba Parade. Or, five minutes in the opposite direction and you are in one of the main Streets in Lapa, the bohemian district.

    2 reviews

    In a ramshackle neighborhood north of downtown, Pedra do Sal is a classic slice of Rio culture. In fact, it was on this spot that many credit the birthplace of samba (back in the latter half of the 19th century). Today this open-air live music event, free and open to all, features samba musicians jamming around plastic tables, while a ...

    A few nice restaurants and some interesting old houses. Not that safe, especially at night: use a taxi in and out and no walking after sunset.

    The Catedral Metropolitana looks like an ugly concrete cyst from the outside, but on the inside of this cone you experience the sun lighting up the tall columns of stained glass. It's quiet and cool inside, making it a great way to escape the bustle and heat outside.

The Benedictines who built this wonderful Church were one of the first to settle in Rio. While the exterior is almost non-descript, the inside of the Church is fantastico! They don't allow picture taking with flash or ...
