The area
Address
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.

The ruins are a short walk from the tram stop in Santa Teresa ands are well worth a diversion. There are great photo opportunities overlooking sugarloaf mountain. From here it is also only a short walk to the Selaron steps.

After learning the history of this place I thought it so apt that it is now used as a cultural centre. It must have been beautiful in its heyday. Would love to visit when there is something on. The views from the top of the house are spectacular with a different twist on Rio than some of the other sights.

Free to enter and ramble around. Worth a look if you are in this neighbourhood.

The ruins here offers some really stunning views of the city, it's beaches and it's mountains. It is well worth visiting as it is free and is an entirely unique experience. The ruins are still very old but have been renovated with a modern touch to build metal staircases and walkways where the previous building has failed. When we were there, there was a musical performance which added to the excitement of this great find!

You can only reach this place by foot, taxi or if you live on the street (no Uber's allowed). It provides a lovely view of downtown and the bay. There is a theater, an outdoor stage that often has performances on the weekend as well as an art gallery and small restaurant. It is a good place to stop if exploring the neighborhood.

The old house felt like a living storybook, the interior designs are a great mix of old tasteful bricks & glasshouse & greens, love it!

You cant miss it if you are at Santa Teresa!

We stopped off here as part of a city tour & initially it seems an insignificant place until you get inside & see some of the views of Rio , different to others you get to see from the main attractions & you progressively get better views as you climb the stairs to the top. There is a small art gallery. Well preserved ruins & worth a quick stop in the picturesque Santa Teresa with many cobbled streets , painted street poles & murals

we walked from a tram stop in Santa teresa which took around 25 mins, on the way back down the bank the tram took us up, I stopped and got my hair cut by a young lad in his garage, ( sounds dodgy) and probably looked it a little but I thought id give this guy a go because why not. he aint gonna rob me of my hair and he seemed pretty legit. It was the best hair cut I've ever had it actually looks sick. and cost 10 reals which is around £2. the museum had some beautiful pieces of art which were very old and blatantly worth a lot of money saying there was armed guards. for sure worth a visit and also the walk to.

The place is very beautiful, the views are excellent. It is not advisable for people without very good physical condition: there are stairs and more stairs

The Parque das Ruinas is a rather manicured ruin of a villa once inhabited by a Rio de Janeiro socialite in Santa Teresa - once posh, now bohemian. It offers great views over the old city. There is also a small gallery and somebody organised Yoga lessons on the site. Right next door is the Museu da Chacara do Ceu, housed in a somewhat more modern villa set in nice gardens. Also worth a visit!
