The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Centro
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.

Colourful gift shop near the Selaron Steps. The area is surrounded by street art.

It is worth checking in for souvenirs. After you have gone up and down the steps, you would be wanting a drink.

We had a very good introduction to the world of flavoured cacacha as well as the clear and wooded varieties. Also tried the excellent carpiranha, which is highly recommended! Added to all this was the informative discussion we had with the staff in excellent English - cannot recommend a visit and the exceptional customer service highly enough!

We stopped in here after bargaining with other street vendors for souveneirs and found everything else we were looking for. There are cool art pieces that are unique to the store and cachaca tastings that the store owner is very knowledgeable about. If only we had more room in our suitcase...

Endrew helped us and was really nice and spoke perfect English. He offered us samples of as many cachaças as we wanted to try. Cool street art around too. Stop by here!

The Lapa e Arte is an alternative souvenir shop strategically located at the foot of the famous Selaron Steps. Opposite the shop are a few of the most impressive street art murals of Rio. Adds to the attraction!

The staff here are great, full of jokes. Let you try the local drinks for free before you buy. Not pushy to buy anything and have amazing air con so after a long walk up the steps come in here to buy a souvenir and cool down!
