Neighbourhood
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.

MGallery by Sofitel is particularly suited to couples holidaying in Rio and seeking to leave behind the busy beachfront properties and instead immerse in idyllic and scenic charms of Santa Teresa. The real delight factor for us at the MGallery were #1 The People and #2 The food.

We stopped here for a couple of drinks and a break from exploring the Santa Teresa neighborhood. The patio by the pool was a nice shaded and serene place to take a break from the hot sun. The drinks were fantastic, and the view of the city was breathtaking. We were tempted to

Hey Marcelo, I'm afraid I only speak English. We didn't park in afraid and I didn't see a car park so perhaps it better to ask the hotel directly. Thanks, Kershia
