One of the loveliest areas in Rio de Janeiro, the charming and artistic neighbourhood of Santa Teresa is situated on a hillside with fabulous views of the city and has easy access to all of the city's main touristic spots.
Take in the atmosphere of old Rio as you walk along the narrow streets, enjoying the beautiful architecture of the colonial houses, art galleries and quaint traditional bars offering live music in the local style. The Tijuca National Park begins just up the hill from Santa Teresa, meaning the area is very green, well-kept and full of animals such as monkeys and toucans etc.
