Special places to enjoy nature, architecture, art, food and music in the city.
Igreja São Francisco da Penitência / St. Francis of Penance Church
Largo da Carioca, 5 - Centro
I discovered this church this year and I was completely blown away by its beauty. But what pleases me the most is the fact that it has a deep spirituality in every detail, exactly what is needed to praise and serve the Lord.
Cidade da Música / City of Music
Avenida das Américas s/n - Barra da Tijuca
Rio de Janeiro is a city of contrasts. Here we find what is most expressive in modern architecture, in a space that not only houses the best concert hall of Brazil, but will also be a point of convergence for ideas, cultures -- an urban framework. It is a space that unites characteristics of various forms of artistic expression, indicating another horizon for the arts.
Confeitaria Colombo / Patisserie Colombo
Rua Gonçalves Dias, 32
One of the liveliest venues in the city's history. Even after so many decades of existence, it continues to be beautiful with its crystal mirrors, its hardwood stalls, remembering a time when Brazil was more European. There is not a single time that I go to to the Patisserie that it is not full with tourists from everywhere. It is a delight to enjoy and savor sweets and salty snacks, carefully elaborated in an environment that is so special!
Theatro Municipal / Municipal Theater
Praca Marechal Floriano S/N - Centro
The musical life in Brazil would not exist without the Municipal Theater in Rio. For decades, the biggest names in music have passed through here and all are delighted by its architecture, with this magical environment where sounds are heard from all corners.
Avenida Atlântica, 1702 - Copacabana
The Copacabana Palace is one of the most beautiful buildings in the city. It cleverly unites the old and new, living together harmoniously. It is an international symbol of high quality hospitality, with exquisite and romantic surroundings.
Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Niterói /Museum of Contemporary Art in Niterói
Mirante da Boa Viagem, s/nº, Boa Viagem Niterói
From the MAC we see another Rio de Janeiro and all the splendor of its landscape! It is a work of art whose distinctive features by its creator are so characteristic and brilliant, as they are incorporated by nature with wisdom. It is the perfect example of sculpture at the service of architecture, creating poetry in every line of its drawing.
Jardim Botânico / Botanical Garden
Rua Jardim Botânico, 1008, Jardim Botânico
It is a great pleasure to conduct in the Tom Jobim Hall, few places in the world offer such a direct contact with an audience and with nature simultaneously. And strolling through the Botanical Gardens is to see and feel nature in its fullest splendor. Whatever the company, there are options for visits and knowledge for all tastes and a precious silence.
