This is a delayed review. We stayed at Castelinho 38 in May of 2015. We had a very nice stay. I wouldn't NECESSARILY describe it as a boutique hotel, as the rooms are more what I would call 'rustic'. The room was clean and nice,...More

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.
