WHY Santa Teresa?

Santa Teresa Rio

Santa Teresa is one of the most unique neighborhoods of Rio de Janeiro with its beautiful and colourful houses that nowadays hosts artists studios, handcraft stores and authentic bars and restaurants.

It is a lively artistic place located on a hill that represent the true Carioca soul. Going to "Santa" is like a return to the past with its narrow streets and original bondinho (tram) from the XIX century.

The neighborhood is also one of the top destinations for food lovers, since it gathers dishes from all parts of Brazil.
