Package Itinerary

During this tour, we visit Sta. Teresa, a traditional district with a mild climate and big houses from the beginning of the century, was built mainly by English railroad managers. In our days, it became an art center with lots of craftsmanship galleries and painters. The way into Santa Teresa is over the Lapa Arches (this used to be an aquaduct that would bring the water into the city center) by taking a little tram over the arches.

After that, you visit Corcovado Christ. The guide takes you to the bottom of Corcovado Mountain. Here you board the little train that takes you through tropical rainforest, passing tropical trees and exotic fruits. A short walk from the final station you find yourself at the foot of impressive Christ the Redeemer (Cristo Redentor).
Enjoy the spectacular views over Rio de Janeiro.

There’s no better way to get to Santa Teresa from Rio’s city center than on the tram. The historic, bright yellow tram takes passengers from the center of Rio de Janeiro up Santa Teresa Hill and ends in the Santa Teresa neighborhood. Built-in 1877, the Santa Teresa Tram is the oldest electric railway in Latin America. Visitors interested in the detailed history of the tram should visit the Museu-do-Bonde.

Santa Teresa’s Municipal Public Park
Located in the ruins of the old mansion belonging to Laurinda Santos, a patron who would gather artists and intellectuals for social gatherings in the early 20th century. The mansion has been partially restored and is now used as a cultural center hosting various exhibitions, events, and special programs. The ruins’ grounds are also stunning. Take a walk around the old mansion, imagine some of Brazil’s finest inhabitants conversing over sophisticated topics a century ago, and enjoy the breathtaking views of Rio and Guanabara Bay.

If you’re looking for something to do at night, then look no further than Armazém São Thiago, Santa’s Teresa’s trendiest restaurant and bar. Situated in a historic warehouse dating back to 1917, the bar strives to keep the location’s name and appearance alive for the sake of tradition, a value close to every Brazilian’s heart. The bar’s ambiance is old-school Brazilian and feels authentic, as almost everything in it is an antique. Enjoy the historic atmosphere while drinking a Brazilian beer and chatting with a local sitting nearby.
