The house of Benjamin Constant, a "founding father of the Republic", is a very well preserved collection of the personal belongings, photos, furniture of Constant's family. Although a museum needs some investment, it gives you a good impression of those days. The garden is great and you can go on top of the hill to check the view.

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors can now stroll through this area to view magnificent mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a former mansion turned museum which houses works by prominent Brazilian modern artists.
