Australian, US and Canadian citizens need visas in advance, available from Brazilian consulates abroad; a return or onward ticket is a requirement. Try not to lose the carbon copy of the entry form the police hand back to you at passport control when entering Brazil.
For details of the application process, you are advised to phone the Polícia Federal. Australia Av. Canada Av. US Av. Uruguay Av.
By air 24 Rio de Janeiro is served by two airports. On arrival, make sure that your passport is stamped and that you retain your immigration form, as failure to do so can cause problems on departure. Both services run roughly every 45 minutes between 5.
Outside these hours, a taxi ride is the only alternative. Duty-free shops only accept US currency or credit cards — not Brazilian reís. A less stressful option is to purchase a voucher from one of the radiotaxi stands within the terminal.
Alternatively, cross the road and catch an ordinary bus from Avenida Marechal Câmara, which you can reach by taking the pedestrian walkway in front of the airport terminal: to Ipanema and Leblon via Botafogo; to Urca; to Leme.
For Copacabana, goes from Avenida General Justo, over which the walkway also crosses. International buses from Santiago, Buenos Aires, City transport metrô station from where you can transfer to a train towards Copacabana. Bus services for getting around the state are excellent but for greater freedom you might want to rent a car — though driving in the city itself is not recommended unless you have nerves of steel.
If the bus reaches the stop before you reach the back, haul on the bell and the driver will wait. In the beach areas of the Zona Sul, especially along the coast, bus stops are not always marked.
Have your fare ready so that you can pass through the turnstile immediately — pickpockets operate at the front and rear of the bus, where they can make a quick escape — and make sure that you carry any items in front of you as you pass through the turnstile. Taxis Taxis in Rio come in two varieties: yellow ones with a blue stripe that cruise the streets and the larger, newer, air-conditioned radio cabs, which are white with a red-and-yellow stripe and are ordered by phone. Both have meters and, unless you have pre-paid at the airport, you should insist that it is activated.
The ferries are cheap and the view of Rio they afford, especially at sunset, makes this an ideal excursion. There are, however, a steadily growing number of specialist tour operators that specialize in either the natural environment or favelas. Rio Hiking W www. There are now several other reliable companies leading similar tours of the Floresta da Tijuca see p.
Also worth taking is a favela tour. While wandering into a favela unaccompanied by a local would be foolish, tour groups are looked after and tours will be cancelled if the organisers hear of particular gang or police action in the community being visited see p. That said, if at all possible, avoid driving at night: because of lack of lighting, potholes and lombadas speed bumps may not be obvious, and breaking down after dark in a strange place could be dangerous.
Since a zero tolerance law has been enforced making it strictly illegal to drive after consuming any amount of alcohol, a response to the enormous death toll caused by drunk drivers. Your car may be stopped by police at some point during your travels, but when they realize you are a foreigner they are likely to leave you alone, unless there is something obviously amiss with your car. Whatever you do, no matter how certain you are of the righteousness of your position, try and stay calm and bend over backwards to appear polite.
In any case, a credit card is essential for making a deposit when renting a car. Most companies are represented at the international airport and, in Centro, at Santos Dumont airport. Average costs Food including eating out and transport are reasonably priced, but hotels, sunblock, good quality clothing, cameras, computers and computer accessories are relatively expensive.
Overall, Rio is a viable destination for the budget traveller. Notes come in 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 and real denominations; coins are 1, 5, 10, 25, 50 centavos and 1 real.
You will very occasionally see a tattered one real note but these are being phased out, although they are legal tender. Throughout the Guide all prices are given in Brazilian reais unless otherwise noted. However, the real has now weakened greatly with exchange rates making Brazil a cheaper destination for North Americans and Europeans. Not all ATMs accept foreign-issued cards, but those that do are clearly marked with multilingual instructions given.
One important thing to note is that for security reasons most bank ATMs stop dispensing cash after 8pm or 10pm, although Banco 24 Horas in large supermarkets will dispense until 10pm. Airport ATMs or private ATMs requiring a withdrawal fee in petrol stations such as in Leblon are the only ones which dispense cash all hours.
Costs, money and banks For visitors, Rio is the most expensive city in Brazil, largely because of the relatively high cost of hotel accommodation. Most of the serious violence affecting Rio is drug related and concentrated in the favelas.
In addition, there are certain areas that should be avoided. Similarly, tourists who choose to walk between Cosme Velho and the Corcovado have been subject to assaltos hold-ups ; risky situations are best avoided by taking the train or walking in a group. Robberies, hold-ups and thefts 30 usually at poor rates and in some large travel agencies.
Exchange departments of banks often close early, sometimes at 1pm, although more often at 2pm or 3pm. Airport banks are open seven days a week, others only Monday to Friday. Criminals know that any injury to a foreign tourist is going to mean a heavy clampdown, which in turn means no pickings for a while. So unless you resist during an incident, nothing is likely to happen to you.
Also, prepare for the worst by locking your money and passport in the hotel safe caixa — the one in your room is more secure than the one at reception. Do not carry your valuables in a pouch hanging from your neck. And keep Drugs Police The notorious drug wars in the favelas are unlikely to have any impact on foreign tourists.
But you should be extremely careful about using drugs in Brazil. Foreigners — usually single young men — occasionally get targeted for a shakedown and have drugs planted on them. Cocaine is not as common as you might think; most of it simply passes through Brazil from Bolivia or Colombia bound for Europe — and visitors to the city are unlikely to come across it.
Health controlled by young and vicious gang leaders from the favelas. Taking out travel insurance is vital see p. A pharmacy will also give injections you need a series of rabies jabs if you get bitten by a dog. Medicines are relatively inexpensive. You can, however, get good medical and dental care privately: hotels will have lists of English-speaking doctors ask for a médico or contact your consulate for 31 BASICS Health advice. Food and drink Many diseases are directly or indirectly related to impure water and contaminated food, and care should be taken in choosing what to eat and drink.
In the unlikely event that your diarrhoea contains blood or mucus, the cause may be dysentery and you should seek medical advice.
The illness is highly seasonal, peaking in the summer months, from December through March. It is easily treatable, but you will feel dreadful for a week or so. It is much more widespread than any other disease in urban areas, and is currently the focus of much educational and preventive work by the Brazilian government.
There are many reasons for this: a scandalous lack of screening of blood supplies in the s; the level of gay sex between Brazilian men, amongst whom bisexuality is common; the popularity of anal sex, not least amongst heterosexual couples; and the sharing of needles, both amongst drug users in large cities and, in the past, when injections were given for medical purposes, even in hospitals. Since the s, however, Brazil has been a world leader in dealing with the epidemic and today all HIV-positive Brazilians now receive free antiretroviral medicines in a programme that has become a model for developing countries, while safe-sex campaigns are aggressive and imaginative.
If you do think that you might have sex with someone you meet, be sure to carry with you — and use — a condom.
They are widely available in pharmacies, where you should ask for a camisinha. Both are independent and have extensive international news, cultural coverage and entertainment listings, but are respectable rather than exciting. The weekly Placar is essential for anyone wanting to get to serious grips with Brazilian football. Rio Branco in Centro.
The media As in the US, Brazil has a regional press rather than a national one. Even the best Rio newspapers are a little parochial but are always valuable for listings of local events. Brazil also boasts a lurid but enjoyable yellow press, specializing in gruesome murders, political scandals and football.
Radio FM stations abound everywhere playing a mixture of commercial local and foreign popular music. One of the most powerful men in Brazil, Marinho was very cosy with the military regime and prone to use his papers and TV channels as platforms for his ultraconservative views. Apart from language, the main difference is that of time-keeping, something that can be especially frustrating for business visitors. In the evenings men hardly ever wear ties, and the dress code of even the most expensive restaurants is smart-casual.
Clubs, too, have a refreshing lack of dress requirements — though a rather conservative form of a casual look predominates. The majority of people working directly with tourists and business visitors in Rio speak some English. Typically, though, people will bend over backwards to try to communicate. Acquiring a basic knowledge of Portuguese is, of course, useful and polite, but people will not take offence if you resort to Spanish, a language that most Brazilians can understand if spoken slowly.
Public drunkenness is quite rare. Instead, the alcoholic drinks of choice for most people are chopp draught beer , always served ice-cold or caipirinha, a simple cocktail made with cachaça, lime, sugar and ice. Timekeeping and punctuality To Brazilians punctuality can sometimes seem like an alien concept.
Be prepared to have to wait for either a business or social engagement and for plans to be changed almost at the last moment. Arriving on time is not, however, considered pushy or impolite — just a little odd, though expected of foreigners.
While any times that may be listed on urban bus timetables are merely approximate or decorative, interurban buses almost always depart on time.
Greetings 34 Brazilians tend to be very tactile, something that is especially apparent when greeting people or saying goodbye. Men who know each other are likely to hug, emphasizing their masculinity by slapping each other on the back, often surprisingly forcefully.
Otherwise you are expected to tip barbers, hairdressers, porters, and you should also leave a tip in your hotel room for the maid. Insurance Prior to travelling, you should take out an insurance policy to cover against theft, loss and illness or injury. Most travel agents, tour operators, banks and insurance brokers will be able to help you, or you could consider the travel insurance offered by Rough Guides.
Internet Brazil has the highest number of computers with web access per head of the population in South America, and all things related to the internet are well developed. Laundry All hotels have laundry services available to wash and iron your clothes but these are usually expensive. Most hostels have facilities to allow you to do your own laundry.
Fairly common are lavandarías, which operate a very useful por peso system of service washes — the clothes are weighed at the entrance, you pay per kilo, and pick them up washed and folded the next day. Ironing — passar — costs a little more. Should you choose to do this, remember that if you enter as a tourist you will be permitted to stay in Brazil for ninety days, which can be extended by a further ninety days see p.
Many medium-term residents then leave Brazil to get a new entry stamp but this approach can create suspicion and you cannot be sure that you will in fact be allowed back in the country.
You may, however, be able to build up a roster of students via word of mouth and ads placed on notice boards. Stamps selos are most commonly available in two varieties — either for mailing within Brazil or abroad. It is expensive to send parcels abroad. Airmail letters to Europe and North America usually take about a week, or sometimes even less, to arrive at their destination. Surface mail takes about a month to North America, and two to Europe. Although the postal system is generally very reliable, it is not advisable to send valuables through the mail.
Maps 36 The maps in this guide should be more than adequate for most purposes. These maps and street guides are sold in most local bookstores and newspaper kiosks.
Shops are usually open from 9am to 7pm on weekdays while on Saturdays many close at 1pm, though they are increasingly remaining open until the late afternoon.
Most shopping centres are open Monday to Saturday 10am to 10pm and on Sunday 3pm to 9pm. Banks open on weekdays from 10am and close at 4pm, except at the airports. For local calls a 5-real card will last for several conversations; for long-distance or international calls, higher-value phonecards come in 10, 20, 50 or real denominations. Ask your hotel for the international access code — it will depend on the telephone company that they use.
Each course offers two hours of small group tuition per day Monday to Thursday for a total of 36 hours, and start all year round. If booking a course and accommodation through a Centro-based school, make sure your accommodation is arranged within easy reach of your classes.
Before dialling direct, lift the phone from the hook, insert the phonecard and listen for a dialling tone. Note that long-distance calls are cheaper after 8pm. Calls, though, will be extremely expensive, especially if making a call within Brazil. Be sure that your phone is unlocked. US and Canadian phones use a different system and unless you have a tri-band phone it is unlikely to be usable in Rio. Time Rio de Janeiro is usually three hours behind GMT, which changes to four hours behind during the northern hemisphere summer.
To confuse things further, Brazil has daylight saving during its summer which means that clocks go forward an hour in late November and go back again in late February. During this period Rio is just two hours behind GMT. Information about the city is from Riotur Wwww. Travellers with disabilities Travelling in Rio for people with disabilities who require special facilities can be 38 challenging.
For example, access even to recently constructed buildings may be impossible, as lifts are often too narrow to accommodate wheelchairs or there may be no lift at all. Luxury hotels, though, have facilities that travellers with disabilities have come to expect in Europe and North America. Access to buses in Rio is only really possible for the agile, while once on buses passengers have to expect to be thrown about as seating is limited and drivers tend to break suddenly and take corners at terrifying speeds.
Taxis, however, are plentiful. Inter-city buses are generally quite comfortable, with most offering reclining seats.
The City 39 The City 40 1 Centro Additionally, Centro contains a staggering number of art exhibition spaces, partly due to government policy requiring corporations to invest in cultural development. The administration of engineer and mayor Francisco Pereira Passos in the first decade of the twentieth century left the greatest mark on Centro. Public buildings, grand avenues, libraries and parks were built to embellish the city, lending it the dignity perceived as characteristic of the great capital cities of the Old World.
Many other historical squares, streets and buildings disappeared from the s onwards as industrial modernisation took hold and the motor car began to dictate urban development. AV E TR. Many Centro attractions are closed on Saturday afternoons, Sundays and Mondays. Be aware, also, that many civic buildings require men to wear long trousers.
For good urban walking routes in Centro, see p. Cinelândia 44 Named after mostly long-gone movie houses built in the s, Cinelândia is a small yet striking area bordering Lapa see p.
Though Praça XV de Novembro see p. At the head of the square stands the grand Theatro Municipal, while on the eastern side busy Avenida Rio Branco is lined with Neoclassical buildings, including the Museu Nacional das Belas Artes and the Biblioteca Nacional. Nowadays, however, beyond Cinelândia it is marred by ugly office buildings and traffic pollution. The impressive debating chamber has an open public gallery with some interesting artwork, including a large s mural tracing the history of Rio.
Several neighbouring sidewalk bars and restaurants serve as popular central meeting points in the evening, when the surrounding buildings are illuminated and at their most elegant — an ideal place to enjoy a cool drink. At the southern end of the square is the Art Nouveau Odeon Cinema, the last remaining in Cinelândia, which maintains lively programming including all-night film marathons with bar every other week and a cachaça film club see p. It was modelled on the Paris Opéra — all granite, marble and bronze, with a spectacular front-of-house decorated in the white and gold characteristic of Louis XV style.
Foot-wide green onyx handrails with white marble supports guide you up the foyer stairs, where crystal mirrors, antique furniture, and stained-glass windows illustrating period tragi-comedies greet you at the top. The auditorium seats just under two thousand people, with a fifteen-hundredkilo chandelier dazzling overhead which illuminates an ambitious painting by celebrated Italian-Brazilian painter Eliseu Visconti.
The Café do Theatro Mon—Fri 11am—4pm , a large restaurant located in the basement and richly adorned with Assyrian-inspired mosaics, is certainly worth a look around even if you decide not to eat. The modest European collection includes works by Boudin, Tournay and Franz Post, but the more modern Brazilian collection is the main attraction.
Organised in chronological order, each room shows various stages in the development of Brazilian painting and highlights influences imported from Europe: the years of diversification —28 includes a number of pieces by Eliseu Visconti; the movement into modernism —49 ; and the consolidation of modern forms between and , especially in the works of Cândido Portinari, Djanira and master illustrator Oswaldo Goeldi.
Aside from paintings there are two halls of space-filling sculptures — mostly badly damaged reproductions from the Louvre — which are best bypassed in favour of a few excellent Brazilian sculptures on the second floor. The third floor is dedicated almost exclusively to abstract plastic arts, with a couple of notable pieces by Regina Vater contemplating the realities of contemporary Brazilian womanhood.
The elaborate reading rooms feature Art Nouveau ceilings, one a beautiful multidomed design using stained glass, and the stairway was decoratively painted by some of the most important Brazilian artists of the nineteenth century — Modesto Brocas, Eliseu Visconti, Rodolfo Amoedo and Henrique Bernadelli.
Among its older items are newspapers from , Portuguese scripts dating back to the eleventh century, maps and documents relating to slave trading and colonial commerce from , as well as books and photos on the Brazilian royal couple, Dom Pedro and Teresa Christina see p.
The southern neighbour of the Biblioteca, the building dates from and served as the Brazilian Supreme Court from to before the capital moved to Brasília. The building project was led by Swiss architect Le Corbusier with an outstanding — and young — Brazilian team comprising Lucio Costa, Oscar Niemeyer and landscaper Roberto Burle Marx — who all went on to design the new capital, Brasília.
Extremely radical for its time, it took nearly ten years to complete and was finally inaugurated in The building is supported by rows of giant pillars which span its entire height, creating an open square beneath now surrounded by tall palms and containing a granite sculpture, the Monumento a Juventude, that somehow captures the youthfulness of Brazil. Here, too, is a noteworthy mural by Candido Portinari see p. The cultural centre contains gallery space for visual art exhibitions including photography and film, and also functions as a venue for classical music concerts and courses on topics as diverse as origami and Nietzsche.
Unbelievably there was a lake here until , when the early Franciscans at the neighbouring convent insisted it be filled in. The eighteenth-century buildings which followed were all demolished in the twentieth century to allow widening of the square and the improvement of nearby roads; and in the s the towering office block and electronics shopping centre Edifício Avenida Central was constructed to add to the hustle and bustle.
The streets north of Largo da Carioca are a maze of shops, markets and historical squares beginning with Rua Uruguaiana pedestrianized most of the way north to Avenida President Vargas.
A tranquil, cloistered refuge amidst the heart of commercial Rio, it is accessed by means of a pedestrian tunnel on the western side of the Largo, close to the metrô an elevator hauls you up into the complex.
The convent was built between and and founded by Franciscan monks who arrived in Brazil in No other building in Rio causes quite such a stir: some find it an extreme modernist monstrosity while others consider it an arresting site amidst an otherwise anonymous mix of mid-twentiethcentury offices.
There is rich wooden ornamentation throughout, carved from jacaranda, including the great chest in the sacristy. Though smaller than its neighbour, it contains remarkable and extensive goldcoated sculpture as well as silver ornamentation.
Infuriatingly its opening times are different to the Convento as a whole: 1—4pm, Tues—Fri. The Morro de Santo Antônio, a hill which extended across this whole area from the Convento de Santo Antônio, was levelled to make way for the cathedral, and the thousands of tons of reclaimed soil were used to construct the Parque do Flamengo see p.
The cathedral is 75m high with a diameter of m and has a capacity of 20, Inside, it is vast, and the remarkable sense of space is enhanced by the absence of supporting columns. Filtering the sunlight, four huge stained-glass windows dominate, each measuring 20m by 60m and corresponding to a symbolic colour scheme — ecclesiastical green, saintly red, Catholic blue and apostolic yellow. Bear in mind that much of this area is deserted from Saturday lunchtime to Monday morning: certainly not the best times to explore.
Additionally, the resultant rock and earth provided for an ambitious land reclamation project which became the neighbouring Aeroporto Santos Dumont. Around Santa Casa de Misericórdia and the Museu do Imagem e Som 50 The one remaining sign there was ever a hill at Castelo at all is the rundown and tiny sixteenth-century incline Ladeira da Misericórdia, an old cobbled street off Rua da Misericórdia, at the back of the Igreja de Nossa Senhora de Bonsucesso, which forms a part of the Misericórdia complex see below.
Heading around the corner onto Rua Santa Luzia is the entrance to the Santa Casa de Misericórdia, a sprawling colonial structure dating from and built by the Sisterhood of Misericórdia, a nursing order dedicated to caring for the sick and providing asylum to orphans and invalids.
On Avenida Presidente Antônio Carlos, close to the Fazenda Federal see opposite is the Igreja de Santa Luzia, a somewhat kitsch eighteenth-century church whose predecessor stood on the seashore — hard to believe now the site is overwhelmed by surrounding office buildings.
The large collection contains some valuable pieces — from furniture to nineteenth-century firearms and locomotives. The second floor displays attempt a detailed documentation of Brazilian history — and in part succeed, with clear thought given to indigenous societies.
Clearly demonstrated, for example, is the structure of sixteenth-century Brazilian high society, including the system of hereditary sesmarias, or enormous royal land grants, which provided the basis for the highly unequal system of land tenure that endures today.
OVEMBRO 52 French Revolution are also considered — the story of independence advocate Tiradentes, who was hung, drawn and quartered and his body parts displayed along the road to rebellious Ouro Preto, illustrates the nervousness of the monarchy. Later immigration is briefly examined, too, including the arrival of , Italians after to work on coffee farms.
Above all, it provides an insight into the colonization of Brazil and fills in some of the gaps left by the Museu Histórico National. Alongside many model ships, a variety of other child-friendly exhibits including cannons and interactive maps are on display. Following the departure of the monarch to Portugal, his son, Dom Pedro, was crowned the first Emperor of Brazil here in Unfortunately this gives the square a slightly transient and dejected feel.
Today, the Paço Imperial has a number of separate exhibition spaces with entrances from both ends of the building — installations are usually themed around modern art and architecture, often with large murals and interactive displays.
Additionally, both the Grand Salon and the Assembly chamber are impressive halls; at the latter you can sit in the public gallery and hear political hot air of an especially Brazilian kind long trousers essential for men, no restriction for women. It includes sections in granite and white marble. Beyond, at the far side of the square, is the gateway for ferries and boat trips to Niterói see p.
Arco de Teles and Rua do Ouvidor On the northern side of the square, the Arco de Teles was named after the judge and landowner Francisco Teles de Meneza, who ordered its construction upon the site of the old pelourinho pillory around Rua do Ouvidor, and originally contained three houses; one of these was home to the Menezes family, but all were severely damaged by fire in The social history of the Arco de Teles and its immediate vicinity is more engaging than the building itself.
Construction started in and, to all intents and purposes, continued right into the twentieth century as structural collapse and financial difficulties prompted several restorations and delays: the present tower was built in by the Italian architect Rebecchi.
Inside, the high altar is detailed in silver and boasts a beautiful painting by Antônio Parreires, which represents Nossa Senhora do Carmo seated amongst the clouds and surrounded by the sainted founders of the Carmelite Order. Below, in the crypt, are the supposed mortal remains of Pedro Alvares Cabral, Portuguese discoverer of Brazil, though this seems unlikely as he was almost certainly laid to rest in Santarém in Portugal.
A small archeological museum is open for guided visits only Tues—Fri noon—3pm; free. The attached early seventeenth-century Convento do Carmo Mon—Fri 10am—5pm was the first Carmelite convent to be built in Rio.
Later used as a royal residence after the Dowager Queen, Dona Maria I, lived here , the building has since been altered several times, and now houses part of the Universidade Cândido Mendes. The high altar, beautifully worked in silver, is particularly striking.
The church and adjacent convent are linked by a small public chapel, dedicated to Our Lady of the Cape of Good Hope, and decorated in azulejos tiling. Its name hints at its curious history; in , a number of army officers organized the construction of the first church here on the site of an early fort. It was used for the funerals of serving officers until, in , the Catholic Church attempted to take over control of the building.
One of the best known Rodas de Samba in Rio, the surrounding streets become packed with weekend partiers. Sadly, they were no more successful in maintaining control of the church, and by it had been reduced to a state of ruin — only reversed when army officers again took control of reconstruction in , completing the granite and marble building that survives today. An excellent exhibition space on three floors with a theatre attached, variety is key here with past exhibitions covering cartoons, iron sculpture and Tennessee Williams.
It puts on a varied, and often free, programme of exhibitions, as well as films, music and plays — abstract art, a human rights film festival and classical recitals have all featured. Situated in the impressive former headquarters of the Banco do Brasil and built in , the building has a round domed hall with several exhibition rooms, a cinema, two theatres, a ground floor restaurant and third floor tearoom — the latter is perfect to wind down away from the noisy urban sprawl.
Of greater interest is a Brazilian naval submarine docked here — you can walk right through it and really get a feel of life onboard. Two boat excursions are available from here, both taking in Ilha Fiscal see box, p. Hemmed in by buildings until , it was appointed its own space when the giant road was constructed, opening up new vistas to the west of the city. It was founded by Benedictine monks who arrived in Rio in by way of Bahia; building started in and was completed nine years later.
The facade displays a pleasing architectural simplicity, its twin towers culminating in pyramid-shaped spires, while the interior is richly adorned in gold. Images of saints decorate the altars, and there are statues representing various popes and bishops, work executed by the deft hand of Mestre Valentim see p.
Panels and paintings from the late seventeenth century, valuable examples of colonial art, are also worth looking out for. Many other children witnessed the attack or were injured; one survivor, Sandro Rosa do Nascimento, later became infamous as the hostage-taker on a city bus in Jardim Botânico in , dramatized in the award-winning documentary film, Ônibus see p. Built on land previously used as a burial ground for slaves, the structure dates from — its bell tower tucked to one side gives it a lopsided look.
Opposite the church at Rua Miguel Couto, refreshments are to be found at the Triângulo de Sardinhas Sardines Triangle , a group of bars with outside tables that have been serving beer and breaded, fried sardines to hundreds of after-work customers for decades. The French were really more interested in the lucrative gold trade from Minas Gerais than in the city, however, and to avoid further pillaging a ransom was provided to ensure their swift departure.
Though there was a religious structure here from , the present church dates from the s and was built by slaves as a place of worship and burial chamber it was partially rebuilt after a fire in At the northwestern side of the building is the entrance to the Museu do Negro 9am—noon and 1—4pm Mon—Fri; donation. More tangibly, the chapel of Nossa Senhora da Vitória, on the right as you enter, was dedicated by Pope Pius X to the victory of the Christian forces over the Turkish in the naval battle of Lepanto in The meticulous decoration is attributed to Mestre Valentim see p.
The bustling market area of Saara lies in the streets north of Praça Tiradentes — easily the best place in Rio for shopping bargains and Carnaval fancy dress. It was completed in and has a magnificently ornate facade, styled after fifteenth-century Portuguese architecture.
Many of the other texts relate to the independence years, when the new library encouraged the spread of knowledge amongst young people in the new Brazil. Silva Xavier was also leader of the so-called Minas Conspiracy of , a plot hatched in the state of Minas Gerais to overthrow the Portuguese regime see p.
Caetano also notches up a bust that stands in the square, a reward for producing shows starring such theatrical luminaries as Sarah Bernhardt. In the second-floor hall of the theatre hang two large panels painted in by Cavalcanti, which explore the themes of Carnaval and popular religion in the strong tropical colours typical of his work.
Three years later, at the end of the ceremony proclaiming Dom Pedro I Emperor of Brazil, a fire razed the building to the ground. Saara market 62 The streets running from Praça Tiradentes all the way up to Avenida Presidente Vargas, the Campo de Santana and eastwards towards Uruguaiana are known as Saara, and contain the most interesting concentration of shops in Rio.
Traditionally the cheapest shopping area, it was peopled by Jewish and Arab merchants who moved here after a ban prohibiting their residence within the city limits was lifted in the eighteenth century.
A new wave of Arab business owners — along with, most recently, Chinese and Koreans — has now moved in. The narrow streets are lined with stores selling anything from trinkets to basic beachware, handicraft items and expensive jewellery; the throngs of traders and folk musicians always make it a lively place to visit.
Particularly good baixars include sports equipment, musical instruments and CDs. A number of food-stalls selling some of the best Lebanese kibe and esfihas lamb or vegetablebased savoury snacks in town can be found along Rua Senhor.
Campo de Santana and around Until the beginning of the eighteenth century the western end of Centro was outside the city limits, which extended only as far as Rua Uruguaiana. By the end of the eighteenth century the city had spread to surround the Campo de Santana, and in a barracks was built to house the Second Regiment of the Line, who used the square as a parade ground.
Peacocks can often be seen strutting around, and allegedly, monkeys have been spotted in the trees. In the late afternoon, other small, furry rodents emerge to scuttle about in the gloom — agoutis, happily, not rats.
On the southern side of the Campo de Santana is the striking bright-red facade of the Corpo de Bombeiros fire station , completed in by architect Souza Aguiar. Radical for its time, it made use of the abundance of new metals mined in Brazil, like tin and iron, to build two front turrets — diverging from traditional Neoclassical style. Saint George has many followers in Rio, particularly as he is linked in AfroBrazilian Candomblé worship to Ogum, the orisha deity from Yoruban areas of the Niger delta in West Africa, also represented by the colour red, of iron.
The first president of the new republic, Deodoro de Fonseca, lived at no. Despite the polluted and harried location, it has nonetheless been made into a small museum Tues—Fri, 10am—5pm; free , containing little more than a bust of the man himself, his medals and a couple of period paintings.
The building also hosts interesting cultural exhibitions — from Brazilian football to academic topics. The avenue was inaugurated with a military parade in , watched by Vargas himself in the year before he was deposed by a quiet coup. The rapid expansion of favelas close to Centro followed — communities such as Providência, in clear view on the hill to the north see p. The one exception is to join the very loyal clientele of strangely fashionable Sentaí Portuguese seafood restaurant for lunch see p.
Under no circumstances walk along Rua Bento Ribeiro, passing through the tunnel under Providência favela from Central do Brasil to reach the Cidade do Samba and Gamboa see p. Completed in as the pied-à-terre of the great landowner Baron of Itamaraty, it was purchased by the government and became home to a number Four blocks west from Central do Brasil is the Monumento a Zumbi Dos Palmares, an ornate bronze sculpture in the style of West African kingdoms, commemorating the rebel slave whose name is given to a national holiday on November 20 see p.
Designed by famous Brazilian architect Oscar Neimeyer and inaugurated in , it is metres in length with a capacity of 88, people. For most of the year, this concrete monument to theatre and fantasy is redundant, but in the run-up to the main event samba schools practise here at ensaios, always with a good crowd of spectators see p. The area of modern office buildings beyond the Sambódromo and around metrô station Praça Onze named after a square long since decimated by Av.
Presidente Vargas is called Cidade Nova. Completed in , it has already won awards for its green credentials. Recycled materials were used throughout its construction; rain accounts for forty percent of its water consumption; natural light is maximized by a central glass-covered square; and, most amazingly, natural air conditioning drives hot air currents up to the roof.
Visits are allowed to the foyer only. Outside of office hours the area is deserted and visiting is not recommended. Exhibits cover the devastating Paraguayan War of the s, and the standoff between Brazil and Great Britain in after Britain permitted the imprisonment of foreign slave traders. Gamboa Adjoining Centro to the north is Gamboa, traditionally a deprived port area, but also one of the oldest parts of Rio and home to its first favela, Providência see p. The main pavilion was officially opened in , and with schools gradually moving their construction operations, Carnaval was the first to see almost all floats manufactured here.
Huge floats and characters from past Carnavals are scattered throughout, and you get the chance to see construction workers in action — busier and more intensive as Carnaval approaches. A long walkway around the complex is raised about forty feet off the ground, providing perspective on the vastness of some of the floats. On Thursday nights, a show is put on aimed at tourists unable to stay for Carnaval; which especially attracts visitors from cruise ships and large hotels see p.
In the British community was given permission to establish a cemetery and Anglican church in Rio — essential if English merchants were to be attracted to the newly independent Brazil. At least half the deceased were Scots or of Scottish origin , with many gravestones bearing Celtic crosses.
The inscriptions on many of the stones make poignant reading, recalling the days when early death was almost expected. Still in use today, the cemetery is dramatically set in a lower-hillside location with the favela towering around it — the contrast is astonishing. Given the setting, it is best to visit when the Cidade do Samba is open as taxis can be called from there. The monumental Roman-style aquaduct, the Arcos da Lapa, which once chanelled water from the hills right into the heart of the city, now carries trams known as bondes up the hill to leafy Santa Teresa.
Still towering overhead, the arches signify your arrival in this the liveliest night-district of Rio. An exciting inner-city red-light district, Lapa is certainly rough-around-the-edges, but comes to life with samba clubs, numerous bars and enormous street parties each and every weekend.
At night Lapa is a prime spot for pickpockets, and quieter streets in Santa Teresa are also vulnerable in the daytime.
Many people arrive at Corcovado by train from Cosmo Velho, a hillside residential area adjoining Laranjeiras and Flamengo, which is also home to the Museum of Naïve Art.
A lively feira see p. Lapa is one of the few places in the city where Cariocas residents of Rio de Janeiro in all their diversity get out on the street together. D RUA A. Facing it across the busy main road on the other side of the largo is the Igreja Nossa Senhora do Carmo da Lapa, attractive yet unremarkable aside for its tower covered in nineteenth-century tiles. A block west within the largo is the large classical concert hall Sala Cecília Meireles, constructed at the end of the nineteenth century as a hotel and converted for use as a concert venue since Each Friday night, the area surrounding the arches hosts numerous musicians and makeshift bars as many thousands of people turn the surrounding streets into a giant party — the centre of the dynamic music scene across the bairro.
By the s more advanced water engineering had made the aqueduct obsolete, and in it was converted to carry fashionable new trams up the hill; today the arches are all the more impressive when seen still supporting heavily laden trams. At the arches northern end the cobbled Ladeira de Santa Teresa climbs upwards towards the Convento de Santa Teresa see p.
The Arcos da Lapa and around Walking one block uphill to the south from here leads you to Rua Joaquim Silva where a steep flight of steps officially called Rua Manuel Caneiro climbs upwards to Santa Teresa. A statue of Nossa Senhora is carried through the streets followed by hundreds of devotees, and left at a small shrine at the head of the Avenida.
Santa Teresa 74 Santa Teresa, a leafy bairro of labyrinthine, cobbled streets and steps ladeiras , with stupendous vistas of the city and bay below, makes a refreshing contrast to the city centre. The cooler climate of the hills attracted the prosperous middle-and upper-classes, and became the meeting point for forward-thinking intellectuals, political activists, artists and musicians — the bairro remains an important artistic centre, with many artists choosing to live and work here.
Its attractions are enhanced by an absence of the kind of development that has turned parts of Rio into a cracked, concrete nightmare. Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Neoclassical and Gothic styles are preserved here in all their glory, a melting pot of architecture where each and every house is different. In the last ten years, foreigners have converted some of the properties into exclusive hotels, pousadas and restaurants, with property values soaring — a hotly debated topic in the bars of Santa Teresa.
The other striking feature of the bairro is its mix of social classes, with six significant favelas located within or surrounding the district. The Museu do Bonde tram museum is a good diversion, too, if you want to know more about the impact of trams on the city.
There are also art shops dotted around the bairro, ideal places to baixar original crafts. Carnaval, too, is a major draw; the biggest party is the Bloco de Carmelites at Largo das Neves see p. Efforts to promote favela tourism here are still in their early days, but opportunities do exist to visit favela art project Morrinho see p.
The square is most animated at weekends and after-work, when neighbouring bars and restaurants often fill to bursting. The Bar do Arnaudo is a short walk east of the Largo, and the Bar do Mineiro the same distance west — both traditional meeting places of artists and intellectuals.
The museum made headline news during Carnaval when it was subject to a daring raid in broad daylight. Old canvases of Santa Teresa and Rio harbour illustrate just how much the city has developed, while in the upper hall, two screens depict the life of Krishna. After her death in , the mansion fell into disrepair, but in the s the ground floor was renovated to house art exhibitions, and the surrounging grounds were landscaped for use as a cultural centre.
Until and the introduction of electricity the bondes were all donkey-drawn. Routes were cut back in , many trams finishing up with US collectors. EVES 78 Convento de Santa Teresa courtyard and chapel open at inconsistent times built around a simple hillside chapel dating from Just below the convent you can ascend a flight of steps back up to Rua Joaquim Murtinho at the southern end of the Lapa arches — and take a tram either southwards back up into Santa Teresa or across the arches to Centro.
Trams on this route terminate at village-like Largo das Neves, a quiet square with beautiful houses and a couple of bars for a cool drink or bite to eat.
The house itself is fairly plain with a few paintings and pieces of period furniture the bathroom was considered state of the art in the nineteenth century , but the gardens are a peaceful and shady spot in the heat of the day. Today, the centre hosts exhibitions of most types of visual art often featuring local artists, as well as occasional jazz or samba concerts in its lovely garden and terrace.
The extraordinary scene below places you as a giant within a highly realistic model favela, constructed from hollow bricks and painted in bright colours.
Next to the supermarket is the stall of well-known artist Getulio, who sculpts all kinds of figures from random junk. Opposite the castelo is a terrace of bars, shops and the evening Baianan streetsnack bar Acarajé da Nega Teresa see p. A little farther uphill is the entrance to favela Perreira da Silva and its art project Morrinho see below. Along this stretch, Rua Almirante Alexandrino offers a series of dramatic views over central Rio and a group of neighbouring favelas between Santa Teresa and the bairros of Catumbi and Rio Comprido.
The tramline itself though without trams continues to Silvestre below the Corcovado and above Cosmo Velho. To continue from here take any bus heading along Rua Almirante Alexandrino past the Corpo dos Bombeiros Fire Station , which finish up a twenty-minute walk from Mirante Dona Marta see p. If you look carefully at the numerous photos on the wall you might spot British ex-fugitive train-robber Ronnie Biggs, who made the bar his second home during his years here. The largo has something of a village feel, with evenings and weekends given over to children playing and socializing fuelled by good food and cerveja beer.
In the light of a full moon, tradition dictates that capoeiristas perform here — to the delight of spectators. The young architects of the project, now all in their mid-twenties, have built Morrinho into an NGO offering local people funding allowing courses in literacy, art and audiovisual production. The French sculptor Paul Landowski was responsible for the head and hands, while the engineers Heitor Silva Costa and Pedro Viana constructed the rest.
In clear weather, fear no anticlimax: climbing to the statue is a stunning experience by day, and nothing short of miraculous in the early evening. In daylight, the whole of Rio and Guanabara Bay is laid out before you; after dark, the floodlit statue can be seen from everywhere in the Zona Sul, seemingly suspended in the darkness that surrounds it and often shrouded in eerie cloud.
Up on the platform at the base of the statue, the effect of the clouds, driven by warm air currents, and the thousands of tiny winged insects clustering round the spotlights, help give the impression that the statue is careering through space out into the blackness that lies beyond the arc of the lights — dramatic, and not a little hypnotic.
Visiting the statue is, of course, a thoroughly exploited tourist experience with all the usual facilities for eating, drinking and baixaring souvenirs. However smart or scruffy, botecos attract a real cross-section of Cariocas — who come together to socialise over cold, refreshing glasses of chopp.
Until the cramped colonial city was levelled in the late nineteenth century and replaced by grand avenues, elegant new buildings, shops, cafés and theatres — all inspired by the Belle Époque of Paris, the street was considered the place of the poor, slaves, former slaves, prostitutes and criminals. The first botecos developed from grocery stores established by Portuguese immigrants, the word most likely derived from botica, the Portuguese term for a small warehouse or food store. Alongside basic supplies, these stores sold snacks and drinks, gradually becoming fully-fledged bars as they grew in respectability.
As the twentieth century progressed, botecos developed into spaces for both men and women. The biggest local brands — Antarctica, Brahma, Bohemia and Skol — are all similarly insipid in taste. One of the most extensive ranges of petiscos, laid out tapas-style along the extended bar.
