For those who visit the Sugar Loaf the track is very close and for lovers of running or hiking this place besides the lush nature and the edge with beautiful beaches offers the possibility to see several monkeys in the trees what enchants the children.

With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
proof that the old and the new can live together

all major companies house their offices. However, the
region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like

Response from Alexandre W | Reviewed this property |
The area is totally safe, provided that it is a military one. You cannot climb up the Sugar Loaf, unless you are a mountain climber.
