There is a Brazilian music that says: "It is like going to Arpoador and not see the sea". It is a must see; enjoy the beach (avoid the Sundays, very crowded) or just be there for a while, to contemplate everything. Following a specific beach...More

many art galleries that show contemporary art. There
