Well worth a visit to marvel at this crazy man's life achievement to cover a dull set of steps in colourful tiles from around the world.
Go early - mid morning to beat the crowds and look at the amazing collection.
Really impressive tile work and very colourful would recommend going along and having a look if close by. We got the tram up and then got off on way back, only short walk from viaduct stop. The area is very rough on the streets you...More
We got there just the first day, as we were staying in Lapa. It’s a place full of crowds, one must pay attention to your belongings, just like in every place of that kind. The stairs are beautiful and indeed give a great vibe to...More
Fabulous tiles on the steps and sides. Worth stopping at intervals and looking at individual tiles, so interesting. There seemed to be tiles from all over the world. Some tiles made designs, like the map of Africa, others spelled out words. Very colourful, felt safe...More
Touted by some as the larges mosaic artwork done by a single artist, this is an amazing stair. From the bottom looking up you see this vividly colored masterpiece. But form the top looking down, it just looks like gray stone stairs. Spend some time...More
This was a truly a unique place to visit!
These stairs were created by a Chilean Artist dedicating these stairs to the people of Brazil.
It took this Jorge Selarón (the artist) 23 years to complete this work, which is now recognized as an art...More
A highlight of the Rio walking tour these steps are a fun stop. Seleron spent years changing an ordinary city stairway to a colorful tiled achievement. Great spot for photos and to simply take in his artistic achievement.
We were told to be very careful in this area due to pickpockets & also not to wander to far up the stairs because it was dangerous. It was very crowded so it was nerve racking making sure no one was trying to stay anything....More

did the one you saw happened yesterday (aug 21) around 2pm? asian guy with black shirt, black shorts, and black backpack with a baseball cap? if it was, it's me. if not, then it's worse coz it only means it happen way too often, regardless of time and crowd. I was able to keep my bad with me as I fought back, but they took my camera. I went to a public hospital for emergency, then went to a private hospital for tomography. God blessed as there's nothing serious. Just had to take painkillers & antibiotics and had a shot of anti-tetanus, as I had two wounds that had to be stitched. I posted this morning as a public service announcement but still pending approval. I'm going to our embassy later, and make a police report. Thanks a lot for the concern!
