It's lovely but in really bad shape, if you like old buildings and photography you will love this place, it's small but it has its charm! If you have time spare and you are already in the area (Cosme Velho, where the Corcovado station is)...More

A very small spot. But, through this small square surrounded by old houses, one can figure out how nice Rio was a century ago. Worth the detour!

It is a beautiful little nieghborhood, but it has been neglected for soo long that it is literaly falling apart. Dangerous at nighttime, go during the daytime! Very close to the access of Paineiras anbd the Christ Statue.

It is a smal square , fairly well preserved with houses from the 19th century. It is worth a stop on the way to Dona Marta and the Corcovado.

An apparently very old little square in a quiet neighborhood in Rio. But the houses were actually built less than a century ago, designed to look much older than they are. But it works. The result is great. A peaceful place, very close to the...More
