Urca is a neighborhood, a rather expensive one to live in, which lies at the foot of the Pao de Acuca (cable car). It is one of Rio's safest neighborhoods as it has but one road to enter/leave by. There is a small beach, and there once was a Casino/Show House, but it has been closed for many years. Carmen Miranda sang there prior to WWII. The building is now supposedly being converted into a design school. I say supposedly because in Rio one never knows until a project is complete.
