How the city has kept the ruins yet restored them is a thing of pure beauty. The fact that it's still ruins leads you to the history of the building. The views from the balcony are gorgeous, and the basement has an art gallery. I...More

The ruins bring an unique atmosphere to enjoy the view of Rio de Janeiro city and also a bit of Niterói. A great place for couples, families and solo.

An old house was let go to ruins, some new architects came in and redid it leaving the ruins in tact. They designed a spiral staircase which is worth the climb to be able to see the entire city in many directions. Down in the...More

This ruined house is a real gem and when visiting it is very easy to imagine the social society of Rio coming here for parties, etc. The house has been made accessible without rebuilding the structure so you gain a real insight into it. In...More

Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local
artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this
neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors
can now stroll through this area to view magnificent
mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th
century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a
former mansion turned museum which houses works by
prominent Brazilian modern artists.
