“Please don't”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

This place holds a fundamental historic axis in Rio de Janeiro's urban development and still it's left to die. Not safe to visit on sundays, as the rest of Rio's downtown is.

“Quite relaxing and cultural”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

This place is right for you when trying to discover the culture of Rio, great wide open plaza to take some photo shoots; the Municipal Theater, the Public Library, the Museum .... and all rounded by some good restaurants and cafeterias you will really enjoy the downtown of Rio. With some entrances to metro you will definitely love being there!

“Meet the downtown Rio de Janeiro”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

It was nice to see the old architecture that was inspired in Paris.

Even though I was always there while I grew up in Rio I never took the time to admire this beautiful scenery.
I highly recommend a tour on downtown Rio if you are spending vacations.

“Marvelous Urban Square”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Cinelandia is a great place to exit the Metro to have a look around at old Rio. You will find the Teatro Municipal, a restored theater from the 1800's, my favorite sidewalk bar - the Amarelinho, the old National Library and the fine arts museum. Visiting Cinelandiia is like stepping back in time about 100 years or more in terms of architecutre. It is close by to Lapa, the new entertainment center of Rio.

“Another stop”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Rio has a lot of these historical places like this one and it is worth it because although I think it is more of the same of architecture stops, there are a lot of restaurants nearby to enjoy and take in the view. One cool thing: go there during the day, walk around it and choose a restaurant and blend in. awesome!!!
