Location

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Santa Teresa is a historic district, the only one with trams still running in Brazil, and at the same time strategic, because is very close to the downtown and the South Zone of the city, a great option for those who come to Rio. It is near the center town, with 3 bus lines, beyond the tram, Lapa, Glória, 15 minutes to the van in Largo do Machado that up the Christ, 20 minutes to sugar loaf, 20 minutes to Copacabana beach.
It is famous for its winding streets with old houses, museums, wonderful views of the city, and many interesting restaurants and bars.
Great places to visit are: the Parque das Ruínas, the Museu da Chácara do Céu and the Selaron stairs. They are all in the same direction and close to each other. They are located about 15 minutes from the house by walking.
In the other direction you will find the House-Museum of Benjamin Constant and the Centro Cultural Laurinda Santos Lobo. They are not as amazing as the other places just mentioned, but they are a nice destination for a small trip after or before lunch, for example. From the house, it takes a 7 minute walk to get there.
And don't forget to ride the tram through the arches of Lapa, it is an awesome trip!

There is a map in the refrigerator's door, and you can use it to locate yourself.

For breakfast or a snac, there is a little shop close to the house, which has an organic cheese bread and a very good açai, among other things. It is named Cultivar. The Bar do Mineiro, at Paschoal Carlos Magno street, next to the Church, has a famous feijoada.
I love the kassler from Adega do Pimenta, but it's a small restaurant so it is better go early, especially on weekends, for you don't to have to wait to be.
When it comes to pizza, there is pizzeria Tribas, which also delivers.
For cigarettes, you can buy it at the newsstand in Largo dos Guimarães or in the small market indicated on the map.
For a beer at the end of the day, Bar do Gomes is a good place. You'll be able to find it with the map, too.
Santa Teresa has many restaurants, I am giving you only some suggestions.
There are no banks nor ATM in Santa Teresa, but restaurants, bars and grocery stores usually accept credit cards.

Sou carioca, moro em Santa Teresa há 30 anos. A primeira vez que conheci a casa foi quando estava procurando um lugar para morar depois de casada. Logo na primeira vez que entrei, senti um encantamento, e ela estava na época em péssimas condições, mas só fomos viver lá depois que a família aumentou. Foram doze anos maravilhosos, entre uma reforma e outra. Nos mudamos de lá no final de 2015. Moro agora bem próximo, uns 6 minutos andando. Era uma casa só, com 3 andares. Resolvemos experimentar alugar por temporada ao invés de um aluguel regular, então fizemos umas alterações e dividimos a casa em 3 unidades independentes, uma por andar, todas com banheiro, cozinha e entrada independente. Mas a casa pode ser novamente unificada e alugada inteira para 10 pessoas, ou também alugada só dois andares. O de cima tem capacidade para 5 pessoas, o do meio 3 e o de baixo, onde tem a garagem e o jardim, 2. O andar de cima pode se integrar com o andar do meio e o andar do meio com o andar de baixo. Adoro o bairro, com seu clima de cidade do interior, com uma atmosfera diferente que a gente só encontra lá. Sou uma pessoa tranquila, formada em antropologia, gosto de conhecer sobre outros costumes e modos de vida. Adoro viajar, sobretudo para destinos com uma natureza exuberante, amo ler e também amo animais. Não como muita carne, e procuro comprar comida orgânica. Faço parte de um grupo de consumo responsável. Me preocupo com o meio ambiente e relações sociais mais justas.
