Saturday mornings. The most bargain-possible location in the whole of Rio. You can find that long, lost, left shoe lace or 17th century Portuguese Faiana pottery piece being sold side by side. Don't miss it! Snooze you lose...

Great place to have lunch and seize the view of Guanabara Bay. The ancient restaurant ALBAMAR, good food, but the most is the view.

When the king of Portugal fled his country, afraid of Napoleon's might, he made this building (Paco Imperial) his home. Its a place filled with history and there is a small museum inside where you can read about the importance of the square and the building.

Excellent spot with lots of history - great little streets to walk into with outdoor restaurants - if you didn't know better you'd think you were transposed into some area of Portugal in summer with everyone enjoying good food and drinks while listening to live music!

Many beggars, dirty smelly streets, dangerous at certain hours. Few attractions, tourist shops more expensive compared to other regions such as the Saara.

This square is a very important stop for all visitors interested in Rio's history. And for those who doesn't likes history, it's also interesting, a good start point to start a walk in the historical city center.
