“Good during daytime, Wonderful at night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

It is one of the many historic areas in Rio´s center, not much of a sight, except for nighttime, when the area really gets exciting with bars and shows.

“Rio as a colony”

I absolutely love this part of Rio! It has the houses, the street stones, and all the architecture old-fashioned Rio had. Its a perfect time machine.
